Does anyone have current server recommendations?  The existing docs are
from the 2000 timeframe.  Or 1.5 Moore's epochs ago.  Which would argue
for about 1-2 GiB and 1.7 - 3.4 GHz on a 4-5 spindle RAID5 filesystem,
if my ballpark is accurate.

I'm looking at a server for 10-30 clients (growing out the system).

I'm also curious if anyone's successfully used iMacs as clients on an
LTSP network.
