Hola, me llamo Andres Hidalgo, yo vivo en EU. Quiero ayudar
en traducir al espanol el libro mencionado. Yo lei todo el libro
y puedo ayudar en los capitulos de extender el language especialmente
in Windows NT/2000/XP. Yo estoy terminando dos extensiones acerca
de como administrar los servicios, eventlog, y del scheduler.

Espero que acceptes my ayuda.

Andres Hidalgo
