Last year we were given sample machine specs for a typical library server
and access server. Is there any new advice on the machines?

The basics were:

Library server:
 Poweredge 2450, 512 MB RDRAM, Level 5 Raid, 18GB SCSI,
 dual 100Mb NIC

Access Server:
 Poweredge 1550, 1GB RDRAM, Dual Processor, single 18GB SCSI,
dual 100Mb NIC

How important is the processor versus the I/O?
