By the way, even though I advocate planning and dollars and sense before you
jump in, there are some quick wins that you can do as a skunk works out of
the above set.

Examples are fully standards based services, such as DHCP, DNS, Fax, perhaps
print and file serving. The users will not feel anything different, so there
is no impact on them. You get more reliable services running, and you get
your feet wet and start learning along the way.

Those can be done quickly and cheaply with minimal hardware. Just talk to
NetDirect first and see their preference for a distro and whether both of
you are likely to work together in the long term.

By clearing away those services, you pave the way for the harder ones in the
future.
