thanks Jim....just the info I needed.  Daryl Hawes is presenting Mac stuff
at the Linux conference in June (the one you're coming to in Bethel
Maine)....and we know we can do the whole Mac client from a PC server, but
would like to try and demo Mac server and mac clients as well just for
kicks.  Thanks for the info. and especially the heads up about the PPC
apps....I might have missed that.  ;-)
