Bounce buffers were *added* recently. They work by data copies. (On
the 386, anyway.) Prior to that, if you had more than 16M, your system
A 24MB ISA bus system with bounce buffers works faster than a 16MB system,
assuming your load is more appropriate to 24MB than to 16MB. But a 24MB
PCI bus system would work a whole lot faster.
