box be serving http and mysql as well, or do you have another
will do mysql?
It will be a single box running everything needed for a Slash site: httpd
(with mod_perl), mysql, etc. Additionally, the box will serve a few
low-traffic web-sites -- mostly static (99%) with an occasional PHP CGI.
The Slash site will generate 80%+ of the hits.

users is not very many. Even if 100 of them all start
site every day at 9 AM when they come in to work,
that's not a lot of
traffic, maybe 1-5 pages/sec peak, right?
5 pages/sec is a good guesstimate of peak demand.
That looks like a great box on a performance-per-dollar basis.
