How slow?  InstantTrack will run on a IBM-XT (albeit slowly).  Performance
in text mode is acceptable even on 640K/4 MHz machines.  I recall that
before I bought a copy of IT, I was using a simple DOS program that would
run on anything that could run DOS.  There *might* be a copy on the amsat
web site (I lost mine eons ago). 

Hope this helps.  73, Steve  KA1LM@amsat.org
