smp celeron 500s w/ rh9 on abit bp6
i was just wondering if anybody has had success running smp on a similar system as this:
red hat linux 9.0
celeron 500mhz (soon to be 2 cpus)
for a while now, i've been intimated by smp.. however, i understand that over the past few years newer kernels have been more complicit with smp..
i've been running cxoffice and a bunch of windows programs on a regular basis. these programs tend to slow my system to a near-halt.. a memory upgrade didn't seem to help much, so i'm wondering if smp might remedy this problem.. any insights would be greatly appreciated..
