Interrupts occurrence

At what speed can I have interrupts happening in the pc386 bsp running 
at 16 MHz. I am generating an interrupt with an external microcontroller 
-- currently every 30 Ms (I was hoping to make it possible every 1 Ms) 
-- however, the 386 is missing some of the interrupts.  I am attempting 
to transfer data between the microcontroller an the 386 by using a 16 
Bit device driver and using interrupts to synchronize the two 
processors. Should I be trying to use DMA for data transfer rates of 
this speed?
