How capable are the serial drivers in NetBSD/sun3?  I know the hardware
pretty much sucks...  Would a 3/50 be able to run a 28.8k modem at 56k?
Would it also be able to handle dns, mail, and a few ftp connections?

I'm wondering if one would make a good router.  I've got one with the
memory daughter board, so it'll max out at 12mb (got 8mb now), so memory
isn't a problem.

Are modern SCSI drives working ok?  (I.e., new Seagates.)

Thanks for any information.  I'd like to relieve my PC of routing duties,
and have all these 3/50s lying around...
