Hi AfterSteppers

I have a Compaq Deskpro P166 with 80MB RAM that
I want to use as a FreeBSD gateway.

It's main job is going to be as a firewall and
DSL gateway for my other two machines (one
running Win98 and one dual-boot Win98/Linux.

I'd like to use AfterStep for a window manager
and I'm wondering how it will do with this setup.
I've run it before on a PII under FreeBSD and it
was wonderful but this is my first experience with
an 'older' machine (it must be 4 years old :-).

I'm not planning on doing any heavy development
on it (and no GNOME), mainly I just want to use
it to surf the web a little and read my mail with
VM (under GNU Emacs). Given this CPU and memory
do you think the performance will be good?

Thanks for any advice!
