Computer and RFI

I'm having problems with RFI getting into my computer.  The computer is the
new addition, and causing problems.  Here's my setup.

1)Ken TS-940 ->SB-230 (1000W out)
2)Ken TS-450 (100w out)

All rigs and the amp are grounded with about 5 feet of 1" braid to the
ground.  Nothing else is grounded in the shack except through the houshold
grounding system.  I had run a Mac Powerbook to monitor the DX cluster for
some time with no problems.  I just rescently got a 386 (mainly so I can run
CT) and now I'm having problems.  When I run anything 100W or more, I get RF
into the computer that makes characters print and makes the keyboard lock up,
as well as the computer beeping.  

I know I should try grounding the computer to a separate ground rod, but I
don't really want to go driving new ground rods as I'm moving in 4 months.
 Any ideas would be much appreciated. Thanks.
