Hi there,

From the cover of the book:

Who this book is for
This book is for intermediate-level programmers with some .NET experience who need a quick-start reference book so they can use ASP.NET 2.0 at once.

So, some background in ASP.NET (2.0) is recommended.

To get more information about the fundamentals of ASP.NET you can take a look at the quick starts: http://asp.net/tutorials/quickstart.aspx

You'll find stuff about many features / controls and so on, including the security mechanism: http://asp.net/QuickStart/aspnet/doc...y/default.aspx

In short: .NET takes care of authentication for you. The aspnetdb database is created automatically whenever you use one of the security features. Through the Web Administration Tool in Visual Studio (choose Website | ASP.NET Configuration) you can manage users, roles and so on.

You may also want to take a look at Beginning ASP.NET 2.0 (http://www.wrox.com/WileyCDA/WroxTit...764588508.html), which does provide the necessary details to get started with ASP.NET 2.0.

Hope this helps,

Imar Spaanjaars
