My favorite is the intel Inboard series. I have one for the XT (leading
edge model D) and it's a 386sx/16 with 1mb ram. runs nice. It's problem
is that most stuff youd want a 386 for needs 4-8mb as minima and the
matching memory card is scarce. Still as a dos engine it's fast and
someday I have to try minix though the memory is low.
