We run our engine on a P2 350 with 256M of RAM, and an average search takes
0.8 seconds, but that server is not dealing with a large webserver volume at
the same time.

What kind of HD are you using? I would not recommend putting the search
engine on an IDE drive. SCSI is much better. Also, make sure that the disk
is defragged.
