HDD                     not required
FDD                      3.5'
Ethernet card (NIC)     with boot ROM
Monitor                 17'
Keyboard
PS/2  Mouse
Case

Software installation not required

3) Documentation
a) Decide a naming scheme for workstations for rapid locate of a problem machine.
b) Fix a name label on each workstation
c) Terminal inventory sheet:


4) Installation cost
a) Server               1 unit
b) Workstations 20 units

5) Maintenance cost
a) Server               one Adminstrator/month
b) Workstations not necessary

6) Running cost
Electricity per month
(heat generated will reduce resulting in less air conditioning consumpted and less
noisy)
