My backup NTP server is a 486DX/2-66 with 32 MB RAM (as much as it'll
take). Early nineties vintage. Usually runs within a millisecond of
its source, the primary NTP server which is no longer the 486DX/4-100
with 104 MB RAM.

All runs just fine. The trick is not to do to much with them. The
small one even runs X. But twm, not KDE.

I still have a working (when I left it) 386SX-16 with 5 MB RAM. Is
there an NTP port for Windows for Workgroups 3.11?
