In our company, we are using

 * Two 386sx 16 MHz with 8 MB RAM as DNS (authoritative, secondary for a
   handful of domains)
 * A 386DX 40 MHz as "ISDN logging machine" (equipped with a ISA ISDN
   card, running isdnlog to make a log of all incoming and outgoing
 * A 486 as backup server (using big IDE drives for data storage)

All running woody and latest 2.2.x kernels.

There are 100MB ISA cards, but the 386 can't use their full capacity.
The machines I mentionned above use 10MB ISA ethernet cards.
