I now have 6 machines running this code.
One Linux machine, P166 w/96 MB of RAM. It took about
48 hours for the first packet.

I also have a P233 running it, but has yet to complete
its first packet.

Here's the good part. I have 4 Sun Solaris Ultra-60 workstations
running between 300 and 466MHz running
this code. I started one today around 2pm, and it's
about ready to finish its first packet in the next
20 minutes or so... so it's about 10 hours for that
machine. Nice! The rest started a bit later and
are a little slower. They'll be finishing up
their first packets around 3am or so.

This whole thing's kinda fun! I hope it works out.
