Another approach we are using is to run an Appleshare fileserver on a
non-Mac system you happen to have around; we use DEC Pathworks to do this
on a VAXStation-4000/90.  The Mac volume on the VAX mounts on the
ABI-conected Mac desktop, allowing copying of the day's results.  Then
users access their data on the VAX server volume from individual lab
Macs.  Pacer also makes an Appleshare fileserver for UNIX systems.
