My 386sx/25 with 2MB runs rd5desd build 399 just fine with rc5. But I 
remember it complaining at the time of DES contest about 'not enough 
memory' - with whichever build of the client was 'current' at that 
time. I couldn't force it do DES and was pleasantly surprised after 
the end of DES-II-1 that it still could do RC5. At first I thought 
that 2.7x clients in general have bigger memory requirements than 
2.6x, because I had used 2.6401...2.6403 successfully on that 
machine. But it seems that it's just DES that this old box can't do.

Does DES core use more memory than RC5? What is the minimum required?
