I'm not using a 386/16, but I am using 2 Acorns (see my .sig) One has an 
ARM2, the other is ARM250. Both run at a stately 12MHz and take around 
7.5 hours to crack a 1*2^28 block.

The fastest they've managed so far was 10.4kkeys on the A4000, while 
they average about 9.7kkeys each. Not a lot, but it's more than nothing
