(cheap) PC to act as the gateway. The hardware specification is
CPU: Pentium II at 433MHz
RAM: 128MB
LAN Card: D-Link 538FE

Internet connection is a slow one below 512Kbps and there is only one
other node than the gateway in the network.

Is the configuration enough?

for pure gateway/nat 486 with 8MB RAM is enough with netbsd, and with freebsd will be too but i'm not sure FreeBSD can be used on 8MB, for sure it can on 16.

i'm using such configurations (486/25 to 50, 8MB RAM) many places. hardware was for free.

on machine you specified you may use squid and make your mailserver etc. without problems.
