[ale] small machines

A simple question:

If I'm going to set up a machine to do the following:

-act as a gateway and firewall 
-serve web pages
-DNS for a small company
-distribute e-mail to about 10 other machines/users
-provide a single ppp line for local dialup

I shouldn't need anything special, right?

I was thinking of trying this with something like
a 386SX-25, 4mb ram, 100mb hard drive, 1 ethernet card
and 1 modem.  Does this sound as reasonable to you guys 
as it does to me?
