[K12OSN] Server suggestions


A good place to start is with the online source:  pcprogress.

They are located in a suburb of Chicago and have very competitive prices for 
computer hardware.  I bought a new server for our lab and it runs great.

Specific hardware items for server:

MB:		Tyan Tiger S2466-4M - Dual Athlon cpu board				$ 231
cpus:	Two Athlon 1800 MP w/ fans and warranty					$ 286
Mem:	At least 1 gig ECC registered DDR memory	(2 x 512 mb)		$ 375
		note:  the Tyan board supports four DDR SDRAM chips
			 and additional 2-512 mb SDRAMs would be very useful
hd ctrlr:	Adaptec SCSI 29160 - 160 mb/s with 68 pin connnector		$ 180
hdiiscs:	At least one SCSI 36 gb drive 							$ 181

Case Fans:  Add intake case fan									$  15
