I have a friend who runs 386/ix on his 5200 all the time.  Works fine, lasts
a long time  (or is that "Less filling...Tastes Great!" 8-)

Seriously, he does use it all the time.  I've played with it and it's pretty
darned fast about it, too.  Personally, I use ESIX on my boatanchor -- I don't
have a laptop.
