     From the FAQ ( http://www.distributed.net/rc5/FAQ/rc5faq.html#HP0090 
)
     
          Note: very old machines (pre-386 class) cannot be used at 
          the present time. The RC5 algorithm depends heavily on 
          32-bit data manipulations. The current set of clients all 
          use 32-bit code that won't execute on these earlier 
          machines.
     
     DES also has the 32-bit-oriented property.
