A basic apache will be 20Mb per thread say 10 handlers that's 200, OS
basics ~50 bf1942 80 that's 330 MB which doesn't leave any space for
buffers / disk cache. Even with a 800Mhz processor you should be looking
at 768->1Gb RAM and duals 2Gb. The rule don't skimp on ram its so cheap
its not worth it.
