For ISA 2000 Microsoft wants the largest cache you can have but at least 100mb + .5mb per web client. The cache must be on a NTFS partition. If you can put it on the fastest hard drive available and on a partition away from the operating system. Here is a link from Microsoft.

In your example the minimum would be 100mb +(50*.5)=125mb but again make it as large as possible.

Yes, the more web pages cached locally the better according to Microsoft.

I've been using ISA server for 2 years. You should alocate as much space as possible for the cache. This is what is actualy recomended.

Cheers.
