OK, so making the assumption that the facts of the Wisconsin
Package remain as they are, I need to purchase a unix box.

I am looking into a SUN Sparc. or Ultra as the least expensive
alternatives to serve a group of 8 or so users.

GCG recommends 64 meg of RAM. Why buy more?

GCG also tells me that 8 gigs of hard disk is sufficient to reformat
publicly accessible GenBank data, but 4 gigs is sufficient to 
run with their formats (if purchased).

Can someone supply details on reformatting and can someone
explain where to access the publicly available GenBank and other
data for GCG reformatting purposes.

I've inquired about a Bionet data bank from Oxford Molecular,
(which has apparently purchased parts of Intelligenetics), but
that data is not formatted for GCG (although it is quite extensive).
