Well Matt, it didn't fix squat. I am now very lucky to get through a backup
without 2-3 reboots. I have EVERYTHING disabled that I don't need to run the
system. 9 was a completely clean install, on a freshly formatted drive.

Disabling AppleShare on this box is not an option, so how retro runs in that
state is immaterial.

As far as the CPU pig goes, with retro running, fore or back, file transfers
are 20% slower with 4.2 running than 4.1

I'm calling Dantz tech support, <tired flame deleted>


maybe this will get me that standalone retrospect server that logic and
common sense dictate I have...nahhh...finance dweebs have those parts of the
brain removed when they get their degrees
