I've run it at real overnight.
it actually does make a difference.
does 2^21 in 4-5 seconds instead of 6.
2^30 in 2740 seconds
as compared to 2^29 in 1640 (which should make 2^30 in 3240-3300 seconds
seconds with it set to low, both were run overnight when my computer was
doing absolutely nothing.
makes sense too
2^9=512 seconds
that's a significant difference.
as long as you have DESCHALL the process in the foreground, it's pretty
easy to ctrl-c it.

as for SP2, wouldn't know about it.
I'm on a version of NT i can't talk about.
