I'm not particularly fond of MacDNS, but in the interest of giving the devil
his due its system requirements are pretty minimal-- per the Read Me it
requires minimum of an '020 with 1.5MB free. A Quadra 605 would probably be
plenty-- I've got to think your client will have something like that lying
around. (Shoot me an email if you want a Q605 with 10Base-T ethernet-- I've
got 'em lying around and would let 'em go cheap.) I would strongly recommend
putting it on its own machine, though-- I haven't found it stable enough to
share space on a mission-critical server.
