RE: 486 vs. 586



I've had great response with my AMD 586, which reports itself as a 486 DX4
100 with 56Megs of Ram.  It does NAT and IPFilter without missing a beat.
It's when I start hitting the IMAP server I have on it that it starts
being a drag... ;)

Personally, I'd go wit the 486 because it has more memory.  Of course al
this depends onhow many hosts your'e going to be NATing and whether or not
you'r egoing to be doing stateful furewalling.
