Upgrade rfom Panther to Panther Server

    I am considering buying another Mac and hooking it up to network with
    my current one. My current Mac, which contains all of my data and user
    accounts is running Mac OSX 10.3 Panther. I'd like it to be running
    Panther Server so that the new Mac can access files on the current Mac
    across the network.

    Can I upgrade my current Mac from Panther to Panther Server using the
    Panther Server CD? Or would I have to perform a new install of
    Panther Server on the current Mac, and then copy over the relevant user
    files? I'd like to avoid that if I can.

    There's absolutely no need to upgrade to Panther Server if all you want
    to do access files across the network. Panther has options to set this
    up in the Sharing Preference Pane. The Server version of the OS is for
    big companies or Schools that want to control access to many tens or
    hundreds of computers on a network.

    yes, insert CD2 and doubleclick the pkg file, reboot when the installer
    has finnished and run SW update until alle packages has been updated.
