AW: [bf1942] 50 player BFV Servers

Just to bring this back up since we kind of got off-track with Zabbix.....

I turned off Hyper Threading on my BFV server ( I swore it was off before,
but it turned out to be off on our BF1942 pub not BFV ) and watched it in
cacti for a half hour @ 42 players.

It hovered around 61-63% the entire time.

This is on a P4 2.8E ( 1mb L2 cache ) 1gb DDR400 just to recap.
