I'd upgrade the CPU, but it should be sufficient.   The better FTP daemons (like
ProFTPD and ncftpd) aren't really designed to be low-profile, but for 
functionality.  128MB is fine for a small site, but I'd try to get an SM51 or 
the like.  I'd probably stick with Solaris 2.5.1 for now, too.

How many concurrent users do you expect?

Definately invest in DiskSuite and / or Veritas for that cage of disks, unless
the array has hw RAID.  DiskSuite has many limitations, but is cheap (even ships
with our systems), and Veritas has some limitations when it comes to a bootable
disk set, but is overall much nicer, but is expensive.
