Just wanted to chime in here since we run a 64 player public server.  We run
ours on a P4 2.8C 1gb ddr400, 80GB 8mb cache HDD.

When it is completely full, the server runs around 75-85% usage.

As far as running two big BF servers, we have found that you can run
somewhere around 100 total BF player slots on a dual 2.8 with no problems
using regular IDE drives.
