So I win !

I have a customer running FB + SAMBA on an AMD K6 ~450Mhz (was this the
name ?) with 64MB RAM serving 7 clients with a 70MB database.

I really try to convince my customer to change this "server" but he
complains and says "Why should I change ???? I just works !"

Well.. I hope those cheaps IDE disks runs for more than 8 years without
a fail :-)

see you !
