Before I install this, I just wanted to get some feedback with regards to
the NT Agent Accelerator.

1) How do I install the NT Agent Accelerator? Where is the file located?

2) Does it make that big of a difference in a "across the LAN" backup?

1) You can either push the NTAA from the server by re-running setup and
choosing "Install Options on Other Servers", and following the prompts or
you canb go to the remote machine and run setupaa.cmd from the
i386\install\ntaa directory

2) I see improvements of 100-150 % across a 100MB switched network
when backing up servers, but nothing I do gets workstation backups
much above 25-39 MB/Min
