How many users will connect to it? What will the concurrent connections be?

Not that many -- 2 or 3 users max, really.  I host a Subversion repository for a couple of other folks, and then my local network.  Sounds like 4 cores would be ample.  I'm not certain of load -- assuming that Xen itself doesn't really add much, the load should be pretty low (if not idle) except when MythTV is processing video, and I was planning on limiting it to 2 CPUs, so again 4 cores should be just fine.

I had kinda figured 256MB for the basic machines and then 512MB for a couple of them (MythTV and workstation), so my 4x256MB + 2x512MB memory sizing.  But, maybe 512MB is the comfort spot for a Linux box...  Which is good to know -- I'd rather spend my $$ wisely.  :-)
