LLMP performs much better on small systems. I have used Lighttpd on
embedded systems with a 266 MHz geode and 128 MB RAM and on a hacked
NAS with 266 MHz powerpc and 64 MB RAM with good performance. PHP
over fastcgi works even faster than mod_php with apache.

webmin uses perl, perl is a performance killer on small systems.
