With an open-ended question like yours, your going to get open-ended answers.
I am running MySQL on several machines. One of those machines has a single
P2 processor, 64M and 4G hard drive - it provides excellent performance to
its "many" clients.
To get reasonable proposals, you need to provide info like how big the
database is and how frequently it will be queried.
It is interesting to note that you already decided on MySQL and
Linux. This platform is not the answer to every environment; like those
that require features only available in beta releases.
