    We are looking at MultiPoint Server 2001 and have around 20 users. I am just wondering which route to go by whether USB Connected Stations or LAN Connected.

    How does the installation setup work for both routes. For example installing the MultiPoint Server then what connects to what (what commonets do I need to link the Sever to the Worksations and whether you actually need a host station. Where does the server need to be and do I need a USB HUB/ Router if going down the LAN option.
