The more memory you can throw at it the better, too (in practice it uses about 12-15MB per simultaneous client which isn't a lot but can mount up on a large installation). > > I may be given an old 486 server to work with (the project has a small > budget ;) as a starting point. > > I guess I'd be looking at an older version of Windows in this case, I'm > assuming NT 4.0, but not too sure if anything newer will work on an older > machine. You'd probably be better off putting a small linux distribution on there rather than something as big as NT. In the past I have run NT on a 486 but it struggled even with 64MB.. running a server on top I'd suggest 128MB as a minimum. > In any case - do you know if CVS, with a fairly small team and fairly small > amount of code, will work well on a 486 ? I suspect you'll have more problems getting the OS on there than cvs... Tony
