NeXT SafetyNet port to OSX? NetInfo Problems.

- Brian Cuthie at Systemix software made an awesome backup software for the NeXT called SafetyNet. Presently, for use with Tape Libraries... it would kick the crap out of Retrospect. Dantz won't promise to put in the ability to backup while restoring files at the same time (Pre-emptive multitasking anyone?)... while SafetyNet would if ported to OSX. Unfortunately my C to C++ skills are pretty much non-existent, and I just glanced at Project Builder on the Developer's Tools for the first time. Needless to say, at the very least it would take a miracle for me to port it (or some extremely large amount of guidance from a seasoned developer with too much time on his hands.) Let me know if anyone even uses this program anymore.
Another thing with this- Anyone have a NeXT network with NetInfo, and a MacOSXserver NetInfo network working together? What I mean is, does anyone having them playing nicely on the same network?
If so how?
Thanks.
