. I tested this for only Slackware 2.3; for other distributions/versions the following numbers may vary.

  • Diskspace: 28MB + 6.5MB/machine
  • RAM: I am using X on 8 MB. For only 4MB swap is needed, I guess, which can be created — separately for each machine — in /tmp. Do not forget to run mkswap.
  • Speed: I had no problems on a 486 DX2/66 with 8 Megs.
