Great site, Simon! I've bookmarked that link for when I talk to my classes about LC Server. So far I've only got a *very* cursory set of introductory notes that I've used in classes and workshops. 


In addition to your notes on installing Server, I also remember that Keith Clarke posted some instructions a couple of years back for installing it on OS X and OS X Server. Unfortunately, his links seem to be dead.

Anybody have live links to this? You still out there Keith?

I'd love to see more how-to materials for LC Server. I would definitely buy a book if it came to be.
