What sort of hardware would you need for the three boxes to run these tests?

I understand that Karim doesn't have time to keep running these tests, but I'm wondering if others would be able to scrape up surplus hardware and setup the test config, accepting configs/kernels from a couple people to test.

I know that I have a large number of slow (<200MHz) pentiums that are just sitting around at home and could be used for this, but I don't know if they would be considered fast enough for any portions of this test (I have a much smaller number of faster machines that could possibly be used)

even if none of the big-name testing facilities want to do this we should be able to get something setup.

There are two ways of constructing a software design. One way is to make it so simple that there are obviously no deficiencies. And the other way is to make it so complicated that there are no obvious deficiencies.
