If those dos clients also had a simple network connection you could share a
public drive on a 95/98/NT/Unix machine and have them all work from the same
blocks, then have the machine that's net-aware upload the blocks at regular
intervals... I've got three machines sharing blocks like that here -
they each upload/download blocks when the pool gets too small.
