     The HD is more likely to survive the continuous pounding for the 
     buff-* files, the checkpoint files, and the exitrc5.now checks than 
is 
     the FD (and does them much faster).
     
     Further, the copy, fetch, copy (to a client on the HD) is noticably 
     faster than using a client on the floppy.  If your intent was to 
have 
     a dedicated client on the HD that used the buff-* files on the FD, 
     then still, to prevent rapid failure of the FD, batch files to move 
     them onto the floppy and then push them back off are needed (at the 
     DOS-client side).

Um... why move the files to the hard-drive? Just run right of the floppy. 
Also, -update would replace the seperate -flush, -fetch. So...
     
1) Yank the floppy from the 386
2) Stick it in the networked machine
3) at the command prompt: rc5des -update
4) when it's done, move the floppy back to the 386
