Zane, I think that you will find that different folks have had different
experiences in this regard. It seems to depend upon the speed of the
processor, the make/model of the FDC, and the FD drive. I have used
TeleDisk with no problems on a 486/33. I cannot comment on putr.

Try it and see is probably the best guidance.
