Heh...you think that's old....
I've got a couple P133s with 16 Mbytes RAM in my home network. I
have no trouble saturating the 100 MB full-duplex links. Actually,
the computers do a better job keeping up than my cheap switches.
The only reason the P133s replaced 486s was that I had trouble
getting OpenBSD to recognize the old ISA network cards and I
couldn't find any 100 MB ISA NICs.
Heck, your computer is more than twice as powerful as my laptop.
This is all on OpenBSD 3.0, too (patched, of course). I'll be
upgrading over the coming weeks when I feel bored.
