Cachesize 4Gig

Hi there!

I have set up a squid 1.0.17 cache on a Linux 2.0.12 machine. The Cache of 4
GB size is stored on a separate partition (the whole disk is for cache only).

Is this the correct way to set it up, or would I get better performance by
splitting the 4GB up into 4 partitions of 1 GB each, or something else?

BTW, the system is a Pentium 133 with 32 MB RAM. Is this reasonable with the
mentioned cache size, or should I better add Memory?

Right now, it would be easy for me to change configuration, since the cache
is only filled with about 500 Meg. But in 2 weeks, the system will be put to
heavy load, and then I need all the cache and the best of performance I can get.

Thanks for your replies!
