yeah you'd probably wanna use linux, however running a mud on a slip 
account even a  28.8k slip is horrendous for your users. Unless you are 
planning only like 5 at a time you'll want a 57.6k line (minimum) if your 
just planning on running the mud for test purposes Linux on a 486/25 with 
8 megs of ram should go smoothly the faster the CPU and the more Mem the 
better. I'm working my mud off of a Intel P-90 with 16megs of ram and it 
loads in about a second or two.
