generally take a while, but I still often did my CS homework
there on it rather than dialing up or going to a lab.
If you like graphics, there are several svgalib programs out,
just be sure you have a card supported by svgalib (svgalib
supports much fewer cards than xfree does, so you're somewhat
limited there if you want higher resolutions and 256 colors).
Now I continue to use my 386sx and a 386/33, both with 120 meg hd
and 8 megs memory, and cross mounting via nfs, nis, and so on.
Haven't had time to install X yet to even see how usable it is,
but I had no problems at all with just the 386sx.
