Just to see how it would work and experiment with networking I
installed RedHat 5.0 on an old 386DX33 running a Cyrix 486DRx2/66 with
8 meg RAM. It serves apache (httpd), ftp, Samba (WINS and file
sharing), tftp for router config backup, dialin network access and IP
Masquerade for internet access. It could do SMTP too, but I point
pine at our factory mail server. I have done sendmail and fax (using
normal printer commands) on my home box, but have not shared printer
or fax yet (explained in a HOWTO). Admittedly X is faster from home
via modem, but it will run X in a pinch.
Our factory Linux box (3K miles away via frame relay) is a P133 32 meg
running Slackware that serves 100's of users for SMTP, POP3, and
'squid' as web proxy.
