I was thinking of bumping it up to the full 64mb of RAM plus the 64mb daughter card, and a PowerUP processor upgrade.  Would such a machine be powerful enough to run as a OpenBSD workstation (console, no windowing system)?  I realize that in all likelyhood that 200$ would be better spent on a 586 machine, but I would like to replace my current Athlon with something a little more reliable (and quite) then x86 hardware.

  An SS2 makes a perfectly usable BSD machine, but $200 is a lot to
spend on an SS2 these days.  Consider an SS10 for about the same
price...much better upgrade path, much newer hardware.
