I've tried a 386DX/40 (with cache) and it was as good as a 486/33. The
thing is availability of memory and peripherals for it. Also there are
problems like some 386 boards getting more than 8-32mb of ram on the
board is hard, expensive or impossible plus limited bios support for
(over 500mb) disks.

I have to check this out. ;)
