Thanks for the details, Dave.  Unfortunately, both the systems you
listed lack SCSI.  I'm a believer in SCSI for servers.  No matter how I
configure their product line, I can't get a dual proc, SCSI-based server
with sufficient RAM at my price point.

The only reason I'm looking at a new machine is because I can't find the
right box on eBay, or rather, haven't yet.  I think a little patience
may be rewarded eventually, and I'll find something used that will fit
my budget.

Hopefully all these ideas will prove useful to others looking for a good
K12LTSP server value.
