We are in the position to have to replace an intel ISP1100 which has
been running as our primary server for some time. As a potential
replacement we are looking at a Dell 2650 dual processor raid5 server,
specs below.   Up until now, the ISP1100 with a P3 800 and 1GB of PC100
RAM has been handling the load like a fine workhorse, but anything
purhcased now is well beyond those specs.  Does anyone have any first
hand experiences, caveats, warnings, or commendations for this server if
it is to use FreeBSD 4.9 as a dns/radius/website with extensive
PostgreSQL database usage.
