Hi John - I was running Interactive with 4 megabytes of ram feeding a couple
of folks netnews using high speed serial lines (locked at 19,200 baud) - while
I was on the system running multiple makes and vpix - and only once noticed
that I was actually swapping.  How much memory do you have in your box?
