I'll check with some people I know. I want to confirm that MTX SMP 100%,
since that's my area of general expertise. (those are my primary testing
systems now;) I've known that BeBoxen can be coaxed into UP, but right
now, I'm focusing more on SMP expansion. x86 SMP, quite frankly, has shown
itself to suck. (my 4x PPro200/1024k is barely faster than my 2x pII-266.)
I don't want that happening on RS/6000's and MTX/MTX+'s. Call me picky. ;)
Also call me busy. Working for a startup can be hell. But I will
definitely get some things done by Friday.
