Hi all,

I will be setting up a small cluster using some older servers very 
soon.  They are IBM Netfinity 4000R's with 2x PIII 750mhz, 1024mb ram, 2 x 
9.1 SCSI hdd, and 2 x 10/100mbit onboard LAN.  Would we see a performance 
increase by upgrading these to gigabit?  Or would it be a waste of time and 
resources?  Thanks in advance for your help.

Best Regards,

-Timo Mechler
