Just cam across this link...
Even MS has the link updated,http://www.microsoft.com/sql/techinfo/productdoc/2000/books.asp, which I feel better.
So stupid of me to forget that. Sorry bout that. Thanks Satya...
Why would someone (http://doc.ddart.net/mssql/sql2000/html/]) want to put up the SQL Server Books online on their website ?
I believe DDART.NET is the korean based website, and hosting SQL Server help and forums.

I think potentially its a great idea, and one a suggestion I made a while ago, was to allow users to post comments to each page to help improve the richness of the documentation. This works extremely well for the online PHP manual, which has lots of useful feedback from other users experiences.
I agree with Chappy on this. BOL leaves so many loopholes and having a comments section gives almost the functionality of customizing the same according to user needs. E.g. If some topic needs explaination, external links can be added to the same.<br /><br />Makes life easy... [<img src='/community/emoticons/emotion-1.gif' alt='' />]<br /><br />Gaurav
I agree with all of you about the usefulness and currency of this kind of thing. It actually feels like another specialized forum.
I always get this quesy feeling when besides having newsgroups to assist users on actual product related issues (at no cost to vendors), the documentation that comes with the product also has to be sorted out by the same users. At least the BOL should be the one area that MS would make sure was pretty OK before shipping. It is a difficult paid job...but I am sure it would help very much.
Separate names with a comma.
