ive been running Bind on OSX for several years now. until recently all 
has been fine. I am having some issues with 10.3.5 on a non-xserve.
all other versions have been working very well as long as you don't use 
apples GUI ( which stinks IMHO ).

if you manage Bind from the command line it should work just fine.
is your HP sys having problems or do you just feel that it needs to be 
upgraded? one of most reliable dns servers is running on a P2 233 w 
BSDi that has been in production since 1998. i have thought many times 
about replacing it with a new machine, but it just works, so why would 
i mess with it? :)
