I concur. I have an S900 with the Umax E100 card (100Base-T plus 
fast/wide SCSI, check Small Dog, PowerOn, Other World for possible 
supplies at $40 or so). My local backup is in the same ranged. Network 
backup peaks at about 60 MB/min over 10Base-T, so I'm exploring a few 
100Base-T switch options, which should allow faster network backup (we've 
sometimes passed 300 MB/min at work). At that point I'll probably move 
the VXA drive to my SuperMac J700, which functions primarily as a server 
for my email lists.

One thing I really appreciate about Retrospect is the ease of moving it 
to another computer, which I've done several times at work.
