Study references for Unix admins that have to learn Win2000

I am an Oracle DBA running all the databases on a Sun Unix server. We are planning on changing platform to Windows 2000. Our NT administrator has never managed a server housing Oracle databases. Is there any manual or documentation that could help in this situation? If not, can you offer any useful suggestions as to what he has to learn/know to prepare himself for these additional tasks? Some things he would need to know: how to set up the server, memory allocation, automating routine backup procedures, etc. Thanks a lot for your help.
Oracle publishes its own series of books on server administration and the like, as well as the other major technical book publishers -- O'Reilly, Syngress, Osborne, etc. Take a run to your local bookstore and commence to browsing! Pick two or four that you like and you're good to go.
