That's a 100 MHz Indy, the slowest model.

I think the biggest problem (besides its slowness) is the disk space
available. E.g. a XFree86 build needs 4.5 GB (including the build
environment, but limited to the required packages). sbuild tends to
grow its environment over time. The sid chroot which I used for sbuild
has now 1.5 GB.
