memtest86 v1.20 runtime?

hey everyone,
here is my question: about how long should a standard check on 191 MB RAM take when using Memtest86 v1.20?

depends on the machine. you should let it run for about one or two days to get every error anyway. iirc my old p133 had to run for about half a day for one circle.
