To compile and test Muq, you will need about fifty megabytes of free disk space. (You could do it in ten at a pinch, with some fiddling.) To run a serious server, you will probably want one or two hundred megabytes, to allow space for the db and backups of the db.
Compilation should be a no-brainer on almost any Unix platform.
You'll need a good ANSI C compiler. The compiler of choice is
that is what Muq is developed on, and because it is available on almost every machine
these days, but Muq has been successfully tested with many proprietary Unix compilers,
including those supplied with AIX and IRIX.
Muq is developed on Linux (specifically ELF Debian), so if you have a choice of platform, Linux is most likely to give you troublefree installation and operation.
