It is a pentium 133 (with F0 0F bug) working as a firewall for a 256
Internet connection, so the load values on this machine is very low
(close to zero most of the time). There are no resource conflicts that I
am aware of - eth0 is at int 10 base address 0xe000 and eth1 is at int
base address 0xd800.
