you need 128bytes/connection. This will give you 10^6 connections at
any one time. You don't need a disk at all if you are preparted to
bootp or boot off a floppy and mount the minimal number of files
As to speed: You will proably be network limited. How fast is the
connection to the rest of the campus? 100Mbps? Do a netpipe test to
another machine at the end of this connection when the network is not
being otherwise used. See if your director can saturate your connection.
