there is much truth to this.  i tried doing a 'make build' on my i386 box
which (due to lack of space) NFS mounted the source tree and also put the
resulting object files on the NFS mount.  4 days of solid running and it
hadn't finished yet (and then the NFS mounted drive ran out of space. anyone
have a few spare [free] 2G drives?? *G*) borrowed a 1G disk from a friend and
the machine did the 'make build' in less than 24 hours (not exactly sure as
i wasn't around when it finished)

ah, but the /780 is a hell of a lot faster than a /750 then too. :)
