you seem to be in a similar spot to where i am (or will be again soon).
We got several old 486's released to us for this, but then they got
unreleased to africa (?????).  *sigh*  The down side of our department
being an international empire. . .

Anyway, we now get this machine and 4 more.  This machine will end up, i
think, with 2x200mb, a 500mb, and 400 mb drive.  The others will have
anywhere from 80-200.

The current plan (subject to change due to vacations by equipment :)
will put minimal systems & X on the little machines (and probably lyx as
well), /home on this machine, and most programs on this one.

I intend to export /usr, and mount it as /usr2 on the other machines.
/usr2 will appear behind /usr in execution paths on those machines.
