Sufficient for what? What do you want to run on that computer? A
workstation? A firewall? A mail server? Apache?
Assuming you want to run a work station I would recommend at least 256Mb
or RAM. The more is the better. Your BIOS would probably see up to 512Mb
RAM. CPU speed is more than enough . I would use at lest 6Gb HD
for a work station.
You computer would with above specifications would make a great thin
client, firewall, home made router or DNS server.
