John,

You can't replace the cache volume with RAM, you will always need a
cache volume.
an IDE disk can be ok for cache, if you don't have many users using the
server. I wouldn't use if for more than 10-15 users anyway. Still, if
you could get a small SCSI disk would be better.
Depending on the number of users and the amount of browsing they do,
probably a single 8GB cache or maybe 2x8GB volumes for cache are plenty.
A dual processor on thart server is useless, because BM won't be using it.
