Hmm, I am running this machine with 32MB and its getting a bit 
tight... (with squid, inn, apachei, msql,  mail-server etc...). I consider
32MB a bare minimum. I wouldn't dare running it with 16MB

If you can spare the extra cash for memory would be a good investment.
Well I am going to get another 32MB soon.....

just my 2 Pfennig
