SharePoint 2007 Single Server Install

Pre-Install There are several things that you must do before you even insert the SharePoint 2007 CD they are:

SharePoint Permission Levels and Meaning

Permission levels and permissions

In this article
Although sites that are built on Windows SharePoint Services often have additional default SharePoint groups, Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 includes five permission levels by default. Each of these permission levels has specific permissions associated with it. As a site owner, you can choose which permissions are associated with these permission levels (except for the Limited Access and Full Control permission levels) or add new permission levels to combine different sets of permissions.
