Single Proxy Machine Requirements

To all you genius people out there. I have a small ISP with about 1000
clients dialaing into about 90 56k modems. I want to run squid on one
machine. The machine comprises of a Solaris 2.6 x86 PII 350 with 320MB ram
and 16G SCSI II drives.

Will squid be able to handle the full 90 clients onboard at the same time?
Also what would you say is the best form of partitioning to use. There are 3
drives.. an 8G and two 4G.

Someone told me to partition 2G slices to avoid fragmentation?

Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
