Sounds good big Ike. . .
Hopefully Grant from ORA can bring along a few Mac Hacks books. . .
I think there's the basics that would be good to cover first:
enabling root, installing XFree86, the ports.
Also the server administration tools are pretty funky, as we reviewed at

I wasnt at the last meeting which focussed on OSX. If OpenFirmware
was not discussed
I think it would an interesting subject to go into for a bit.
