SubjectRe: Athlon SMP blues - kernels 2.4.[9 13 15-pre4]

We're using the 1.4 GHz Athlons (non-MP) in a Tyan S2460 with no problems.

Check some reviews, such as from Tom's Hardware or AnandTech to see some
specifics regarding the use of non-MP processors in SMP mode. It definitely
is possible and it works fine, but check those websites for details from
someone who knows a heck of a lot more about SMP than I do..... : )
