Hi all,

I am setting up a small network of 1 LINUX Server, 20 client PCs running
Win98 and Netscape.
All the clients will be used for Web browsing, FTP, telnet only.

The Linux Box is a high end Pentium with approx 200 Meg of RAM, first disk
is a 4 GIG SCSI, 2nd disk 8 GIG SCSI.
I am wanting to use this server as the cache Proxy for access to the
internet using Squid.

I would like to make a 2 gig partion on the 1st 4 gig disk for a squid
cache, and also partition the other 8 gig for squid cache use as well.
Then partition perhaps 1.9 Gig of the gig for redhat binaries, libraries
etc, and then partion 100 meg for the swap.
Is that too little space for swap?

Im also thinking of using the Linux box as the DNS server as well, would
that be too much load on the one box in these conditions.

P.s I am connecting to the NEt via a 64k ISDN line.

any suggestions would be great.
