Well Poul Henning Kemp runs NTP servers on Soekris single board
computers with the O/S and ntpd in PROM. That's pretty minimal and
probably less than you want.
I would expect a 133 MHz Pentium (7 - 8 years old now) to handle it.
If you're not too proud to be a trash picker, simply grab the next
machine you see at curb side that has not been stripped.
