Thanks, g-rod. I didn't really know what I was looking for in those, but after spending some time in an IRC channel, it's been established that even though I have SMP enabled (for 2 processors), only one processor is being utilized.
4th week of this..... and I still don't have everything working with full support of my hardware. Any person in their sane mind would have given up by now. I thought I finally had it last night when I got that recompile to work, only to find out that enabling SMP was all in vain. =(
