        I would imagine that older CGA/PCjr type games such as 'Chuck
Yeargers AFT' or 'Gato' would likely be a problem on a lot of newer
stuff, especially if it required you to boot the disk. The sad thing
is, the new P4 CPU's don't impress me as there is no noticable speed
increase, and there darned well should be when you're up at a gig and
a half clockspeed!
