Is there an advantage to 100MBPS Ethernet?

This is a networking question, but it has more to do with hardware (so I don't think the question belongs in the networking section). If one has a network of 5 PCs, all of them 486DXs, would one see a significant improvement in running 100 megabit per second Ethernet versus 10MBPS? Or would the 486 processors be a bottleneck and therefore it wouldn't matter whether one ran 100MBPS or 10MBPS?
