    Hey,
    I want to install Leopard Server onto my new MacPro. The MacPro came with 10.5.6 Client but I have Leopard Server and I would like to migrate the data from my old server. Can I just restore from a Time Machine backup and copy over the video card drivers? If so where can I find the drivers?

    Thanks for any advise,
    Mano.

    Thanks. Apparently there's more to it than that though.

    What finally worked:
    1. Install Leopard from MacPro restore disk.
    2. Use a Time Machine backup to move your data when prompted.
    3. Install Leopard Server from the disk. (Apparently it only installs the server components when its sees Leopard on the hard drive. So your Leopard Client files are not replaced.)
    4. Software update.
