I have 8 megs, in an Everex STEP/25, with a _fast_ SCSI drive and it's STILL
untenable.  (Actually, the "fast" SCSI drive even 'slugs' it out under ESIX.)
As far as I'm concerned it doesn't work with 8 megs, either.

If you look up the word "slow" in a dictionary you'll find a picture of an
ESIX box running X-Windows.
