    Hi All, I'm helping my brother-in-law set up a network for his office,
    and I have a quick question. He has a 4 user network, and their only
    needs are file storage and printer sharing. Their website and email
    are with a web host. Someone sold them a Poweredge with SBS2003 on it.
    No one in the office is familiar with server administration so they're
    having difficulty maintaining it. My thought is that they don't need
    the server. I'm considering recommending something like the Seagate
    Mirra or Maxtor Shared Server to make administration easier for them.
    Its unlikely that they'll do a lot of growing within the next couple
    of years. Before I make this recommendation, is there any benefit of
    SBS that I'm overlooking?

  2. Hi - I believe you have replies to your identical post in another group. In
    the future, please don't multipost - if you need to post to multiple groups,
    it's best to crosspost instead, by posting a single message to a handful of
    relevant groups (separate the NG names with commas) so that everyone can
    follow the thread. Multiposting wastes everyone's time, including yours, and
    may lead to your actually getting *less* help rather than more.
