In my office we have 3 mac machines and 1 win95 machine. I am supposed to setup a LAN that can connect to the internet, serve web pages, and also allow
people at the company (4-5) to get email. I want to setup a Mac server at the office, with a 24/7 ISDN connection to the internet, and an ethernet network. The server will have to serve web pages
and also provide email for people at the company AND file sharing between all 4 computers. What software do I need to accomplish this, what is the best server to buy, and how do i do it.

That is one of the easy ones actually.

If you are not experienced in networkin, I will suggest that you talk to your apple dealer. Apple has a package deal with all included, webserver, mail etc.
Then you contact Miramar systems <http://www.miramarsys.com/>. They have a product called PC-MacLan, that will allow you to fileshare and print from the PC to the Mac network.
Server hardware: The Apple dealer can tell you that, but I would suspect that you end up with a 8500 or maybe a 8550 depending on the web volumen.

Simple, reliable, and you don't have to maintain it all.

If you are experienced. Then I would go for a Linux solution.
Set up a Linux box with masquerade, AppleTalk and Samba.
For the webservice use Apache (I think 40% of the world does that).
Still, get the PC MacLan for that part of the problem.

Email: for both solutions: Eudora Pro - don't go for the light.
Web: NetScape - its still better than explorer (IMHO)
