now, I haven't dealt personally with s390 since it was s370 and 
punchcards and mag tape were still de rigeur, so the following is purely 

a reasonable MINIMUM for a test-n-dev machine is likely around 512MB ram 
and 18GB or so of disk.   

it needs to be accessible via ssh from the internet, and it itself 
should be able to access internet.   I assume those have some sort of 
console processor?  that also should be accessible via ssh or whatever 
from the internet.   It would probably be a good idea to have a x86 
centos host on the LAN with it that also can be accessed from the net so 
you can cross-compile and net-install locally.
