Well, -current is always bleeding edge, and even on "standard" hardware
it might produce weird results.

OTOH, I have a 233MHZ Pentium-MMX (Socket7)-dual CPU as Workstation
here, with
5.2.1-R, and its running fine for everydays application.

The critical issue here is RAM, I have 128MB in it, and well, its enough
to have firefox running, but in most cases, I only need some xterms...

So I would say, that your hardware (given that there are more than 16MB
RAM in there) will run fine.
