Anyone running a pre-G3?

I have a 9600/233, 256MB Ram, brand new 9GB SCSI HDD that I'd like to use as an email server. Any tips before I try it tomorrow afternoon? What flags would you use? I might pop in a G4-466 on an xlr8 adapter card just for the install, but not sure.

Planning on running it headless with webmin, postfix, and spamassassin with backups being done to an external SCSI HDD.

Only use distcc (I have a 7600 and a PB 867 12"). It now takes hours instead of days to upgrade.

There are even bootstrap via distcc howto's on the distcc website. (http://distcc.samba.org/)

using distcc was on the menu, but never tried to bootstrap with it. Will look into that thanks!
