I think only concern should be HDD. You can start with a 500GB disk and keep adding as you go on. Videocache has the flexibility to add as many disks as you want on the fly :)

Thank You!

I've tried it with Ubuntu 9.04/Python2.6/Squid3.

I was able to get past all the common problems, but then failed with errors in the python scripts trying to find non existant files (in the /etc/squid directory - i.e. not squid3).

I gave up and went back to squid2, as there are no features that I need from squid3.
