[Mongrel] Why Mongrel with NginX

Hi, I'm a newbie to Ruby. I'm installing an small server (256MB RAM)
with NginX, Neko, Perl, PHP4, PHP5, Ruby & MySQL. It's easy Perl, Neko &
PHP with FastCGI but why to use a mongrel cluster?

It's my first time with nginx & ruby, so why I should use mongrel?
Why not just FastCGI-ruby if available?
Is mongrel cluster too much load for 256MB RAM?

With PHP there is no security for shared servers. How does ruby handle
shared hosting security? Is there an appropriate way to install
ruby-mongrel this way?
