  Interesting...my nameserver (~40 domains) is a 3000/300 that gets
hit reasonably hard.  Under that sort of load, it's been very

  But now that I think of it, that's running NetBSD/alpha 1.4T.

  Anyway I have two AS200 boxes here running NetBSD/alpha...one (1.4T)
gets used very lightly and the other (1.5) gets beat on pretty
