It would depend on what else you are doing with the machine
and the numbers of users. 128mb of Physical memory should
be fine for most setups, assuming a dedicated machine for SQL
Server (with no local user logged in).

I can partly agree with this, but not totally. For SQL Server 6.5,
the most important thing is to configure the memory settings correctly.
Fortunately, SQL 7 has an auto setting where you don't have to
worry about all the memory settings.
