Yes. The ANSWER matrix you are looking for is readily available. I don't own it, but I can provide the answers (free of charge) should you be interested. They are 'all over the internet'. Drop a line if your still looking.

Enjoy :)

i don't beleive there is any such reliable tool out there. there are simply to many variables to network layout. however, using general rules such as the 10 user peer to peer limit, printing and internet sharing issues, etc it would be simple to build an html driven "choose your own adventure" type q and a site. ask how many users and toss in an else if for < or > 10 users. true of false strings for file sharing or intranets. an answer to peer to peer vs server based could be solved this way. as far as detirmining what types of platforms, topology, and software are required will probably require good old human intervention.
