[K12OSN] OT - Minimum specs for a BackupPC server

Hi folks,

I tried emailing the backuppc-users list but my email keeps bouncing, so 
I thought I'd try here.

Almost every night I get an email from my backuppc server telling me 
that the backup process was aborted due to signal=PIPE.  I've tried 
upping the timeout to no avail.  Some nights the backup works, often it 
works when I do it manually, but not always.  Anyway, my server is very 
wimpy.  I'm running a Celeron 466, 256 of RAM and the backup drive is 
78% full.  Which of any of that would you think could be causing the 
problem?  Or do you think this isn't the issue.  "top" shows my CPU 
pegged at 99% for a lot of the backup.  My backups are usually taking 
about 650+ minutes when they manage to finish. 

Thanks a lot, list.
