I have a server with multiple low volume sites running perfectly on a 
133 MHz Pentium.

256 MB of memory does the trick.

The only thing that is a little slow is restarting. But that is 
generally not a problem as I tend to restart production server rather 

Btw. It also runs Apache, IIS and a mail server... It isn't that long 
time ago that A 133 MHz machine was top of the line. Even then it was 
running Zope.
