[mythtv-users] Backend with really crappy hardware

I just realised I have an old 66 MHz 486 machine with 64 MB memory in my 
storage room. Has anyone successfully run the backend with such a slow 
machine? I don't intend to run an X server or really anything else than 
what is absolutely necessary with that box. I do have two DVB tuners but 
just writing the data streams to disk shouldn't take too much cpu.

What do you think, does mythbackend and mysql require more than 64 MB 
memory or would that just result in excessive swapping?
