Well, the first question is "Can you get an OS onto that 486?" If you
can, you stand a good chance of getting snort on it. Memory will be your
biggest problem. As it stands now, snort wants something like ~92 meg if
you use the defaults. I'm sure you'll want to drop that (stream4) down
some for that small of a box.
As for speed... Well, that all depends. There is no easy or right answer
other than "Try it." :-/ What seems like enough sometimes isn't, and
what seems like not enough sometimes is.
Sorry I can't give you a better answer. :(
