For a 30-client lab, you'll need 2GB RAM minimum,  As far as
processors... I'd say that a 2.8Ghz P4/Xeon with Hyperthreading should
be able to handle it, although true SMP would still be preferrable.  Raw
speed isn't what's important; the ability to run multiple processes is. 
I run a 32-client lab on Dual Opteron 240s - 1.4Ghz apiece.  The CPUs
have never been overloaded.  And 2GB of RAM has done fine, but the
clients are running IceWM, not Gnome/KDE.
