Apache should have no trouble handling that on commodity hardware.

If you want to see something interesting, check out

It's a graph of web hits and mail delivery attempts performed by the box
that hosts  Measurements are taken over 5 minute intervals, so
when you see "Max web hits/min" that's sustained over those 5 minutes.
This is on a PII 266 with 256MB of memory and a 10MB connection at in SJ.  The load bounces around 0.5 to 3.5 at times, particularly
when we're running rc5des on it :)  It does a number of other services,
like DNS, FTP, ssh, even gopher(!) but web and mail are the primary ones.
