I have a 486DX fully configured and ready to step in as my fallback
IPCop gateway if the primary should fail. The primary is a 200MHz
Pentium. With the 10Mbit ethernet cards and standard Road Runner cable
modem service, it used to get about 600MB/sec. The 486 would do about
75% of that (450MB/sec). A good enough backup I think.
