I'm currently running a Pentium machine (Linux 2.0.32) with 128M of RAM, but
only 256k of cache memory. I've seen documentation saying that I'll need at
least 512k of cache.

Well, my system seems to work.. what sort of problems can I expect? Will it
be anything more serious than a performance hit due to cache misses?

The system seems to run fine (and yes, I've used well over 64M at once).

Thanks in advance,
