    A friend of mine just asked me "If I had an XSERVE and an XSERVE RAID could you set it up for me?"

    Of course I said "Yes" without thinking.

    (Anything to get my hands on some funky hardware)

    But anyway, what I wanna know is - for a quite experienced user, how difficult are the XSERVE's to set up? I managed to get Windows Server 2k3 up and running reasonably well on a small network, and I can't imagine Apple Server's being MORE difficult to operate...?

    Two things I should bring to your attention:

    For the majority of server users, the GUI setup and configuration utilities built into Mac OS X Server will "serve" you well (pun intended).

    Apple's website for Mac OS X Server will be a useful resource, as will Mac Help (built into Mac OS X Server) in getting the XServe set up.
