    Thanks for the great info.  It would be very  nice to have a SMP build
for the server since the windows one isnt smp-aware, but that would mean a
lot more work for Andreas, so I dont think it'll happen.  I was just trying
to get an idea of what HW to use for our linux testbed, a P4 3.0C or a
AthlonXP 3000.
