that's not all that much.  we ran 6M hits/day for a site at Organic
with no difficulty <grin> on a sparc 5.  we just loaded the machine
up with 256M of memory and a boat load of servers.  i suspect they
are memory and cpu bound. we found that lots of CGI's really stop
a server in its tracks, and spent some time optimizing them, moving
them to a different server, and what not.
