I played with this some on a small scale. Didn't seem like it was too
difficult once I understood the Microsoft terminology. The one thing I got
hung up on is whether to create a separate device for replicating on the
publishing computer and how much space needs to be allocated to that.
(That's why I just did it on a small scale with a couple tables) I'm
working on some more of this if you want to correspond of off the list.
