Thanks to everyone for the input.

It looks like you have saved us a lot of money, time and headaches. You're
right Jeff, I almost did get suckered in on this deal. M$ does, in fact,
have great marketing. With all the initial hype on MCIS I was ready to plop
down the big$ and climb on board. But I got concerned when the hype shifted
from MCIS to the new Site Server packages. I have spent the last 20 years
in marketing and I know that you don't repackage a product and shift gears
unless the original is a flop.

Thanks again for confirming my suspicions. This is a great group and I
expect to become a frequent participant. Hopefully, I'll be smarter soon
and be be able to contribute as well as request. Actually, I'm smarter
already after just one post <bg>.
