I am sure that Athlon MP 2800+ or a Xeon 3.2 with a gig of ram will do
the job nicely without any delays. To be on a safe side, make them dual
and you'll have no problems. Intranet side shouldn't take a lot of
cpu/memory, so you shouldn't worry about it. Unless you have lods of
mysql requests, this setup would be enough.
