I stand corrected..

I've setup serveral caches.. So I was thinking about the type I
would use.. Mostly they are lower end intel (p75-p150)
with 32-128megs... And a few gigs of hd. Some IDE some SCSI.. Linux..

THOUGH, what kinda reduncy and reliability does this cisco box have.. For
all we know, it has a SIS chipset pentium MB with a P75, and 80ns
non-parity ram, a NCR scsi controler, and a single segate elite hd.

I think that your 44k solution would be better. I'm jusr trying to make
the point that I could throw togeather hardware to match what they've
mentioned for ALOT less..
