how much ram: small server?
i'm ordering a mini-itx motherboard tomorrow,
a via embedded board with C3 1ghz and dual lan.
Why? -> need silent pc, low power, allways-on server.
I will install linux, still doubting which distro.. redhat, suse, slack, mandrake, debian... i dunno any suggestions hehe.
this will be the use: apache, ftp-server, mysql, php, samba file server,
mail server, and a few i am forgetting ;) I will not "work" on the pc actively,
when it's configured and running, it will sit there and do its tasks.
Note: internal use: 2 users, external (apache, ftp..) just 1 small website
that doesnt have really alot of visitors. So full proc load won't even be reached
i guess. think small;)
Now my main question: how much ram should i buy to always have things
running smoothly ?? 256 or should i invest a couple of bucks more
for 512 ?
thx in advance!!
