Look under prerequisites at:

You need a computer running some Unix-like operating system (i.e. not
Windows), SP 1.2.1, local copies of the HTML DTDs for SP, PERL 5, LWP PERL
module, a web server, and the W3C validation PERL script itself.

A 386 16 MHz with 6 MB RAM or so running some Unix-like OS, such as Linux or
FreeBSD, should run this fine.
