Re: Memory for a sparc 5 to run cern server



Hi

I am not sure, but I think you will get a better answer if you ask the
question on the

	www-proxy@www0.cern.ch

list. There you will find a lot of people with practical experience
running a server. Take a look at the Mail information at

	http://info.cern.ch/hypertext/WWW/Administration/Mailing/Overview.html

in case you are not subscribed to the proxy list.
