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 wasn?t 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.
