I was wondering if any of you have any experience running a game server
under Debian.  Also wondering if you know the CPU/memory/bandwidth
requirements of such a project.  Thanks,

The hardware is a PII 266, 196 MB Ram, the connection is 1.5 MBit
down- and 192 Kbit upstream. It manages the load great (loadavage
always below 80%).

I've seen smaller machines handling hundreds of users simultaneously okay - and the main game process often was running nice'd down behind extensive number crunching. Okay, maybe you did not think of a (text-based) MUD/MUSH when asking about a "game server"... ;-)
