    Does anyone have the Mac Mini setup as a Server for File Sharing, iCal Sharing, etc. using 10.5 Leopard Server. If so, does it work well or are there issues. Currently, I have a Western Digital My Book hooked up to the Time Capsule to share files, but the lack of setting permissions will not work in the near future. Any help is appreciated.

    It does meet the minimum requirements:

    Minimum System Requirements

    * • Mac server or desktop computer with an Intel, PowerPC G5, or PowerPC G4 (867MHz or faster) processor
    * • 1GB of RAM
    * • 20GB of available disk space

    The server edition is basically the client edition with added GUI features for managing services. Everything is in the client edition, but without the GUI. So yes, your mini will be fine.

    Read the OP, he wants to use calendaring as well as File Sharing.
