Potential Server Question

I have a dual 450mhz pentium 3 machine with a gig of ram. I was wondering if it could possibly run an ns dedicated server. Possibly for use on a lan.

    Of course you could! Just depends on how many players you want...

    I would suggest that you wont be able to run more than around 8 players on that server (thats me being generous). Unfortunately NS does use a lot of CPU cycles and Half Life is not threaded (i.e. it wont take advantage of the extra processor). The smallest server I ever used was a celeron 800 and that could only handle 10 players.

    Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.
