I just want to add that I use that machine under very heavy stress
both for SCSI and memory without any problem. E.g. I recompile the
gnome desktop (which is partly c++) with "make -j" which always gets
me up to 140M into swap space (that means around 270M total memory)
and I never had a problem with the newer kernels, no sig11 or
something like that.
