    I'm thinking about getting a mac mini with sl server. Since there's no disc drive how would one upgrade to 10.7 server (assuming there will be a lion server)?

    You will likely be able to get it on a Thumb Drive, use an External Drive, or use Remote Install to install it via another computer with an optical drive.

    Thanks. I didn't really trust trying to install the system over the network, but I see now that apple's external optical drive works with the mini server.

    Any external drive will work, including a $40 drive you can get from Best Buy.
