    Have you read the documentation on shell-mode? If your entire system is
crashing, I suggest you upgrade to Linux. 
    As for the P-IV compatability, i386 should be fully compatible. If you
wish to compile Emacs with P-IV optimizations, you'll have to find some in the
compiler. I'm not sure if there are any beyond basic Pentium optimizations.
Read your compiler documentation.
