[bf1942] Sorting out the lag-issue

I beg to differ.  I am running a 64-player demo server full 24/7 my Dual 
Xeon 2.8, 1GB ram Win2003 without any lag.  That's not the only server 
that's on there, I also have a 32-player retail server on the same box.  
Full now and then.  I experience no lag in-game when both are full.  The 
only issue I had was the dang crashing every 6 hours with the retail server. 
  The Demo server is rock solid.  In addition to the 64 and 32 player 
servers, it's also serving up TS, FTP, and a 24-player CS server.  No lag 
what-so-ever in the 64-player server.

Also, I'm running another 64-player retail server on a P4 2.8Ghz, 512Mb ram 
without any lag.  Same problem with the crashing every 6 hours though.

So whoever can't run a 64-player server on a dual xeon should really 
investigate the box and it's configuration bc it is possible.
