If you have a server with 4 PCs you should NOT be backing up the PCs - you SHOULD be using the server to save all your important data and backup the server ONLY.  Backing up the clients (XP Workstations) is just excessive and potentially expensive for licensing.

hello Nukuna.

I should say that Server (Enterprise) versions are quite expensive.
The normall server back up software costs around 700 $ , (as usually server version is more expensive).
As for home version they cost around of  50 - 80 $ , but
i 'd recommend u to order Acronis True Image 9.0 Home Pack (which consists of 2 copies of Acronis True Image 9.0 Home) and u'll save $30 off it's price!.  well, if u order it twice u'll get 4 copiess for 140$.
i think it's best solution for u.
