 I just switched one K5-133 box from DOS client running under WFWg 3.11
(shared buffer files with the LINUX server box's client) to LINUX - I'm
seeing a 3-4% increase in key rate on this box. Significant enough that
I'm gonna eventually try it on all my other WFWg / DOS client boxes, now
that I know it can be done in less than 60 Megs.

 The Win16 client, on the other hand, is unstable JUNK at anything
resembling a high clock tick setting - or it's SLOW when it is stable.
