   Thank you for the update. I am still waiting for my copy of AIX_CW2K from 
Cisco. I hope that they are holding it until all the fixes identified by you 
and others are corrected.
Please let me know how much memory the jre daemon eats up. I did see an email 
that said 200 meg with 80 % CPU on Solaris 2.6.
As I understand, the upgrades available for the F50 are 166(1-4) or 332(1-4). I 
did not see any 266 upgrades in my book, anyway, may be it does exist.
Thanks again;
Gil Irizarry

I recently installed Cw2k on an F50 nearly matching your specifications..
(dual processor 166MHz, 512Mb RAM, AIX 4.2.1, NetView v4, CW4.).

After some initial (annoying!) install problems (which Cisco are now aware
of and have work-arounds for) everything seems to be OK. I have noticed that
the Web Server component of CW2K is very processor intensive (25%
Utilisation on those components alone). In our particular environment that
was deemed to be unacceptably high so we're installing a replacement
processor board (dual 266MHz) and an additional 256MB RAM

The upgrade hasn't arrived yet so I can't say how it has improved.
