We would like to install a reflector in the near future. Being a small
research lab with limited means, we want to do this spending as little
money as we can. However, we expect this reflector to be heavily loaded.
Would in this case a PC (486 8Mb ISA + good ethernet card (3COM Etherlink
III (3c509)) running Linux be sufficient, or schould we buy one of the new
SUN, HP, SGI, RS6000, better PC ?
