Hey, you could also simply put userpages in there. A swapout means
you simply reprogram the IO register. A swapin means another outb to
one of the four "page" registers.....
If you happen to have 5 areas you need in quick succession on the EMS
card, you'll be able to witness your machine doing close to a few
hundred thousand swaps per second. That beats the hell out of any
decent server out there... :-)
