[RC5] Slow?

Under windows 2000 you should run it as a service and not even have a window.
on the command prompt type "dnetc -install" and obviously close the windows.  It will run automatically from there.  You should leave the client on lowest priority unless your computer is acting as a big electricity user and not doing anything else otherwise your other tasks will suffer

Depending on the OGR packet it could take ages to finish.

  Two questions:
  1) I have a computer with AMD Athlon Thunderbird 900 MHz processor. It computes the OGR packets really slow - about two per day (and I'm not running any other programs!). Is that normal?
  2) Under Win2000, is it better to run the client minimized (the small icon on the tray) or normal-windowed?
  Also, when I check the processes with Task Manager, it shows that the client is running on lowest priority, but I've set the number to 5 in config file.

  Thanks in advance.
