Nope. Pentium Pro(i686) or higher. I tried to install 11.0 on a K6-2
and it refused, because it said that i586 is not supported by the
current kernel.

Really? That surprises me - I was sure the minimum was still i586.

I could test the PPro part. I have 2 boards somewhere with PPro 200's
and 128MB RAM........However, I ran 10.2 on one of them and it wasn't
fast enough, even as a server. scp speeds on a 100Mb card was under
2MB/s, and the cpu was pegged at 100%.

Depends on what you want your server to do, I guess - even a 486DX2 can
saturate a 100Mbit/s card. With rcp, not scp.
