Subject: (1.13) Suppose I have a 286 machine?

Won't work. INN is designed to be a memory hog; a server that has been up
for a few days while will have a working set size of a few to several
megabytes, although not all of it will be resident. For example, the
server keeps the active file and list of who gets what in memory, as well
as all articles that it is receiving. Unless you can do things like
"malloc(64 * 1024)" without pain, INN won't work on your machine.
