Rookie here.  I have a small site servicing only < 100 people with hits
concentrated ~4 days per month.  Do I need a mongrel cluster or will one
mongrel be  enough?  Is it worth the hassel in a small site?  My VPS has
96M of RAM running CentOS.  Thanks

You're setup will be very tight with 96 megs of ram, no matter what
you do.  You should start with one mongrel and stress test it, to see
if it falls over or gets killed due to hitting memory limits.  If you
do anything like file uploads, image processing, loading massive
result sets, you will definitely need much more memory.

I am doing image cropping and thumbnailing with Rmagick, but only on
initial upload - then it is handled by the file system.  Otherwise the
system is just selecting and retrieving AR objects. I can go up to 128M
for +$5 / month. Should I just wait and see?

You may benefit in a memory-constrained environment from something
other than Rmagick...
