For a while, while testing, I ran squid *quite sucessfully* for a small
group of people (ie, about 20 machines) on a 486DX4/75 machine with only
(yuck!) 4Mb of physical RAM. I *thought* it had 16 at the time, but nope,
was only 4. It was running BSDI 2.0.1 unix at the time, and squid
1.early-something on a 1Gb drive. It ran without falling over, for about
a month, and was happily making about 18% hits on that small userbase.

It was, after all, only to test the concept....
