If he doesn't have the cookie, he gets redirected to a second page that checks connection speed ("page_a.html"). If he's on a dialup, he gets sent to to the low-speed version of the site.

I put a Disallow: page_a.html in my robots.txt file for all of the pages on the site.
So far, Google seems to be regarding this as acceptable. If you hear screaming in Milwaukee in a couple of weeks, though, you'll know that Google decided it wasn't ok. ;)
Will it affect page rank? Will it cause me to get dropped totally?
Both the root and the index page of the subdirectory that I want to redirect to are PR4 but the root has quite a few more backlinks.
