I am in the process of getting a 384kbps upload and 768kbps download DSL
connection. I am planning on hosting my own websites (twelve domain
names but very little traffic on any of them right now) and email. I was
thinking about hosting all the web sites on one SS5, 170Mhz, 256MB of
RAM, and an SCA SCSI 4GB 7200rpm hard drive. For a 384kbps connection,
will the built-in 10Mbps ethernet be enough? I was thinking about
hosting the email on a second SS5 with the same setup. Would that be a
workable setup?
