Um ... yes. I assume you're just looking for verification that you're
selecting the correct technology, and you are.

That's impossible to even guesstimate without some idea of what kind
of load the system is going to be under. I have a fileserver here that
serves Windows and FreeBSD clients and it's a 200mhz with 96M of RAM.
But I would never suggest that for a big installation.
