Indeed. I've got a 7011-250 (66MHz PPC601) with 32MB of RAM, running AIX
5.1 with a tokenring NIC in its single MCA slot, just to act as an FTP
server for my S/390 G5 to boot off of.
It's doing "useful" (though limited) server stuff, on a really slow box,
with barely enough memory to install AIX 5.1. :)
