I only have one question.  How can you possibly know that a XENIX box
could run rings around "anything on the lan?"  Novell Netware '286 has
is a pretty fair Network OS, and Netware 386 is VERY fast.  How do you 
know XENIX would be faster?  Netware is certainly faster than any
UNIX based DOS file system that I am familiar with, those being AT&Ts DOS
services and Banyon's Vines.
