Do you honestly expect an answer to that?

No better, I doubt any worse either. Both have benefits and issues.

Classic server runs better where multiple CPUs are involved,
Superserver runs better where the different connections run similar
queries and can share the cache. I would think that (unless you have
bumped up the cache size significantly) 100 users would take under a Gig.

To be honest, you are dealing with a database server for 100 users.
You mention 2 disks? What are they? (Better be SCSI). You may want to
consider a separate disk for the tmp space.
