I run just such a server. It is a 1800XP with 1/2 gig ram running 4.7-RC. We can handle 20 ppl easily, could probably get close to 32 if ever got that popular. http://server.counter-strike.net has good info on reqs that are fairly close to freebsd. Note that if you start tacking on mods, the cpu usage goes up. So, as far as requirements, try it on your target machine and see how it fares. I recommend installing mrtg to track usage. When you go to install the linux steam stuff, be sure to run it as a normal user in their home directory for security reason. Then you can run the server with normal permissions (non-root) and be safer if hlds is ever compromised. _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
