What sort of throughput are you getting with that setup? Are you using  
NFS between the systems?

Good question about OSX, and I hadn't got to that part yet :-)  But I  
was hoping that some OSX drivers existed. My fail back plan is to put  
3 x 1GbE NICs into the server and just use crossover cable between the  
3 workstations and the server to avoid any contention within the  
ethernet network.
