What do you need it for?  dnetc uses all /available/ CPU all the time. 
Changing the priority causes other tasks to wait in line behind dnetc
instead of the other way around.  I doubt you'll see any measurable
increase in keyrate by using such a product.  You might even see a
drop, as ATM must use at least *some* cycles to do what it does.

|I'm using a product [freeware] called ATM to tweak my dnetc process
|on Win9x.  One handy feature is the dynamic process handling which
|allows idle->high* priority ranges.  It allows dnetc to slump down
|to idle or kick-in at high priority depending on sys load.
