I'm running quite nicely on a P75(ish might be more), 64Mb ram with
a 3.5Gb spool for an ISP using 1.18NOVM. Since the upgrade from 32 to
64 it's been a lot happier, swap doesn't happen any more. My next
task is to get more of the users to hit the cache *grin*, time for
redirecting port 80 methinks, then I can justify the hardware

Now how much would four 4gb disks cost.... *grin*
