The NSC SC1100 would be the processor in the net4801 (actually
266MHz). The net4501 has a 133MHz AMD ElanSC520, thus the 486 class. 

So, between running at 133MHz (vs. 90MHz) and the SDRAM (vs. EDO or
whatever) I believe we have the reasons behind the performance
difference between a net4501 and a P90 system.

Could the NICs in the P90 also cause problems? How about that ISA
NIC...
