        You bet, I have an installed base numbering in the 40s. They 
work really well and even though there is no Retrospect Client (yet) 
I have been able to back them up by mounting the directories on the 
backup server and backing them up from there.

        I expect that since OS X Server and OS X are based on 
Unix-like kernels that there will probably be a Linux/Unix compatible 
Retrospect Client sometime in the not to distant future.

        There are a few companies that do conversions of desktop 
servers into rack mounted servers. I saw one that will convert an 
iMac into a 1u rackmountable case. I wish I could remember the name 
because I would think about buying a few.
