I do exactly that, using two NetBSD machines connected with 14.4k's.

One machine is a 486dx/40 with 8M and a medium sized hard drive, while
the smaller is a barely large enough hard drive (120M) 8M ram (could
use only 4, but it came with 8) and one of those 486-in-a-386-socket

I get lost characters, but nothing too major typically.
