Just purchased a macmini lion server. It will be used concurrently as a file server, as well as by a logged in user as their personal system, and we also want to use it for vpn.

I have a small office with only 4 users, including the user whose system this will be.

We are a design studio so we have large files flying around, but the frequency is low because we are so small.We will not be sharing programs from the server except for CD Finder for catalogs of CD's and DVD's.

It is my intention to attach an external FW 800 drive for additional storage for files less used.

We will be doing a migration of a new user (other than admin) for the user whose computer this will be.

I am looking for advice as to how to best set up the server's shared network users, whether the external drive scheme is an issue, especially for VPN, and any other general advice regarding issues people may have run into in this type of scenario.
