[NEWBIE] CircleMUD and problems with other programs

I have been coding my MUD for a while and i have added a few things to the
code but nothing drastic.  Until recently I was just going to have to spend
a lot of money to run my MUD but now I found someone who will do it for free
on his server.  What I need to know before I go ahead and do this and start
causing problems is how does CircleMUD interfere with web servers, mail
servers, and other communications programs that are running?  On a Windows
NT 4.0 server running multiple programs would MUD crashes and general MUD
use cause problems with the other programs or cause them to crash as well?
I have heard all about MUD crashes but I haven't actually seen one and I
don't know what it does to the system.  Also, with 32 mb ram and a pentium
pro 200 would the system be slowed down by the MUD?  I would hate for his
system to crash and cause him to lose business because of the MUD.
Any advice would be helpful.
