thought I'd pass this along -

512 MB RAM
2 30 GB IDE disks
Ensoniq ES1371 sound card

The testing was done while running X windows (icewm), Netscape 4.78,
iptraf, and misc other services (named, sendmail, apache, iptables
firewalling etc.

During the dbench runs mpg123 was playing mp3s -

Highlights -
- There was absolutely no mp3 skipping during dbench 16 & 32.
- There was minor skipping during dbench 40, when load was near 40.
- Best of all, the desktop remained completely responsive the entire
