I have a DX2/66 with 64M RAM, 1GB in SCSI disks, Buslogic controller
and plain old ISA Ethernet. I run over a hundred virtual web servers,
DNS for an entire ISP (named generally grows to about 16-20MB) and
e-mail for 1500 users on it. It works ok.

You probably don't need as much horsepower as you think.
