Given that Csanad says he has access to Stat/Transfer, he can also customize
his selection of cases and variables there. The program also has a random
number generator that allows one to draw a, say, 1% sample which can be used
to test stuff that subsequently should be run on the whole dataset.

Also, until you get the upgraded OS/Stata, you can select some sub-set of
the variables in your .dta file to -use-.  See -help use- for more details.
