I have not noticed a ~3-4 times increase but something more closely 
resembling a bit over 2 times as fast.  Now these are all PII's maybe
other CPU's are getting better gains.

I'd be interested to hear how similar
   PII's, PIII's, Celeron, k6-2, k6-3, Athlon's and how about a Xeon do.
Say 450's and 500's.

   Under linux I am using glibc2.0 clients is there any advantage to
running the glibc2.1 if I have RedHat6.1?   They seem to work fine and
I ran a TEST and it passed.  Comments?
