It will definitely be better suited for this task than R5, but it will 
also definitely not match FreeBSD or Linux in this regard.
OpenBeOS will be a user centered OS - that means it will probably have 
less through-put than any real server systems like FreeBSD. It will be 
enough for most smaller tasks, though.
Anyway, you shouldn't use FTP/Telnet in BeOS - once someone has access 
to your machine (as those protocols are not encrypted), he can do 
everything (running as root).
