I have a 'high performance' HPIB and a slow one. The drives are on the
high performance one and ZOOOOOOOOM at 182k per second (measured by
Iozone). The thing is a real speed monster when it starts to swap!
I shudder to consider performance on the slow interface! (300 baud! :-)

| Well, the 320 and the 350 just said ``300'' on the outside...
Doh! Rev. B rings a bell. I will pull out its brain and see what the
little crystal says :-).
