I'm a little confused and very interested. I have an SMP system with
IDE. I'm not going to do RAID. Is there known to be a problem with
SMP+IDE without RAID (I had thought so)? Has it been fixed?

I was going to use Red Hat 6.1 (2.2.12 + some RH patches), but had
been scared off. Is this version thought to be SMP+IDE safe? If not,
what is?
