The units are micro-seconds. 1 is the default - which seems to cover
almost all 1990s ports. Some ports on really old adapter cards (pre 1990)
seem to have a bandwidth limit of about 250 kB/s (dly = 4).

I don't know where you are, but if you can get the Lava card, do. There
are only two choices as far as I know, it and the SIIG card. The evidence
seems to be that the Lava card is a true high-speed EPP device, while the
SIIG is a proprietary printer accelerator. (It doesn't hurt that the
Lava card is made here in Toronto, either ;-) ).

What I don't know is if anyone has used one in an Alpha.

[Tim - are you listening - do you know anything about Lava & Multia ? ]
