Given the smilie, I'm assuming Mark's suggestion was in jest.  (NFS is
not generally a reasonable option for MacOS v. < 10 clients.

The temptation is to just leap in with a flying squadron of expertise to
"help".  But I'd urge sitting down and talking about such things as
what's the goal, what is the level of commitment, who's going to
maintain the stuff when you're done, etc.  


Enthusiasm and energy are great, but I hate to see them wasted.
