Um ... yes.  I assume you're just looking for verification that you're

That's impossible to even guesstimate without some idea of what kind
of load the system is going to be under.  I have a fileserver here that
serves Windows and FreeBSD clients and it's a 200mhz with 96M of RAM.
But I would never suggest that for a big installation.
