Also, it would be great to build an MMX enabled client for NT so we can
take advantage of these systems in a more fashionable way than letting the
OS do it. The performance increase of MMX vs non/MMX right now does not
seem to be that great.

I appreciate any information you could give me.  I do so hate to see these
machines sit idle, when I could be using them to jump into the top 100
instead. ;)  I don't know how widespread interest is in such a client; I
know someone else here expressed an interest in a Windows 3 / DOS client,
with or without networking.  If networking is the major obstacle, it
should be possible to get these machines crunching using a samba-mounted
share, as well...
