No.  Only run multiple clients if you have multiple processors or need
to extend the time between connections to the keyserver (since each
would work at 1/2 speed).

Don't worry about what pulse says.  A P133 will get about 150kk/s on an
inactive machine, less on an active one.  Check out the Team Warped
page and the Team Warped mailing list for good discussion of running
the client in OS/2 (see my .sig which some people here think is
obnoxiously long ;-) ).
