I have been enjoying the conversation here about MAC and DOS computers on
a Novell LAN.  I am at a fateful moment in my thinking about future
developments.  We are dreaming of creating a schoolwide LAN with a server
housed in the Library.  My question. If I want this LAN to connect mostly
Macintoshes, with a few DOS computers here and there, what problems can I
anticipate?  Would there be any problems with the server being a Mac?
Can the network be administered on a Mac?   Finally, can you suggest
solid sources of information that would help me evaluate the pros and
cons of the possibilities I must choose among?  I have run little
Localtalk networks, and understand how they work very well. It is the
world of ethernet that seems more challenging.

Thanks, in advance, for your thoughts.
