I think this box would run several catalogs with no problems.  What's
the upper limit?  Not sure, my development box is similar to this

not all getting hammered at the same time).  The box is exremely
snappy even while doing other things.

Sure.  The script to make a new catalog (curiously called 'makecat'
just asks for the DSN.  It uses it just like any other perl script.
