I'm pretty rusty on my 68k stuff. My servers are all PowerPC.

I think the 8100 IS up to it cause it has a g3 upgrade.
You might need a bit of ram.

I would sugest WebTen (www.tenon.com) in the base of it as it can run php and perl scripts as is, whereas AppleShareIP runs MacPerl.
MacPerl needs the scripts to format paths in a native Mac way like :catalog:subcatalog etc.
You´d have to hack all prebuildt Perl scripts.

WebTen emulates a unix environment and runs the scripts as is.

I have more faith in Apple's own server software for Mac OS 7.

WebTen is known to be faster and it has it´s own tcp/ip implementation.

Pre 8.5 (or was it 8.6?) had slower speeds over ethernet .

I´m sure Apples webserver has a splendid uptime, think i remember some security contest with an Apple webserver.

It was finally breached due to a third party component (and NOT Apples software).
