    SubjectAPIC? IO-APIC? (was Re: 2.4.xx: 8139 isn't working)

    Hi, if i may interject at this point in time, and ask something
    related, is there any reason why we should enable APIC or IO-APIC on a
    uniprocessor system? What's the difference between the 2, or what's the
    practical usage of these?


    I'm reading the Configure.help and Documentation/i386/IO-APIC.txt for
    these 2 items and i'm confused.

    Thanks.
