Well, the CPU is a fairly weak starting point. You are also light on
memory. However, the network cards are the killer. They are the nic
equivalent of a WinModem. All of the "heavy lifting" is done by the CPU.
If you bump the memory up to 128 meg, and replace the nics with Intel
would bet your throughput will go up significantly. Perhaps even double.
