VIA @733 MHz is quite usable for most things. Processor speed is about P3
400-500 (lower for heavy FPU better for integer). I actually have a few
of them mostly running as my routers/firewalls and they've paid for
themselves in electricity bill reductions.

The big thing you want is *RAM*. 256MB ought to be enough to run OK,
512MB is better. Alternatively shoot the heavyweight gnome desktop stuff
and install the Xfce packages which will run well on such a box, and
sylpheed or sylpheed-claws instead of evolution for email.
