My overall topology will consist of:

- The HP/Apollo as an NFS server for home directories, print server, mail
   server, etc.
- The diskless HP340 workstation booting off the HP/Apollo
- 12 PCs running Linux
- 1 SGI Iris

I would think this is a light loading as the ony time the PCs would be
running is during the UNIX class's lab time.
