No, you got fired for not setting ulimits. Your boss is right

ulimit -d 65536
ulimit -v 81920

and my netscape is very happy most of the time.

And my system is not disturbed.

64MB RAM + 256MB swap.

In a school I had the same setup on a 256MB server (256MB swap)
serving apps (StarOffice and Netscape) to ~16 X clients.

I never had OOM there.

I think this is the amount of memory an oracle server at least
have to have, right?

What are your ulimits? What are your amounts of RAM+SWAP?
