The sites will not be database driven.

The disk is not external. The machine is not actually here yet and I was
planning on replacing the internal 1GB disk when it gets here. Where
could I check to find out if it can support a 7200rpm disk?

This brings up another question I forgot to ask. I was looking at 4-port
SBUS ethernet cards. Is there any real advantage to hosting each domain
on its own IP? Right now I am running two websites through apache using
name based virtual domains. From the apache docs I gathered that this
does not work with HTTP/1.0 hosts. I have not even heard of any HTTP/1.0
applications. Isn't everything using HTTP/1.1 these days?

Also, is there any documentation that tells how to set up sendmail for
virtual domains on OpenBSD? I found a few things but nothing seems very
simple. Is there a resource I have overlooked?

Thanks for all your responses.
