shockdaddy hello ...

yes .. Linux supports dual/quad motherboards ... Linux RedHat 6.1-6.2 for example will autodetect 2 processors automatically during the setup ... RedHat Linux works and has been tested FINE with up to 4 processors... some people have tuned their kernel for up to 8 processors... but for 2 processors its not a problem at all..

For more information about dual processing read you linux redhat manual. That booklet has 2 articles of what you must have in mind when switching to multiprocessors.. but most of the times those will be picked automatically ...

Linux will work like a horse on that environment and it is very stable.

Thank you ... enjoy your multiprocessing power with unix(Linux)... :-)
