They are more than powerful enough--our primary web server is a 486/100
with 32 MB RAM, and it's handled pretty much any linux app we care to run.

Yes, Win '95 can be run quite comfortably on a P100, as we're running a P90
under Win '95 (essentially because the people behind "Meeting Maker" (the
software the school is using as a scheduler) will not release even a binary
for Linux).
