I have a Rocket 33 too and here are my experiences with it and MCL.
With the Rocket 33 installed in a Mac II, MCL won't run at all.
Everything else works, but not MCL.

have had significant problems using the serial ports and TCP streams
in MCL under this configuration. When reading from such streams MCL

The Rocket is a fine product and sure makes my Mac II faster.
