"Obligatory Meeting" and SMP question

The scsi drives are huge.  My own experience came from running (sorry about
this) Windows NT on an IDE system, moving it to a Hardware raid-5 system,
but with a slower processor, and even NT looked fast. (Unfortunately, this
was about 1 year ago before I knew how to set up a samba server...bummer!)

Yep, it works. I run Mandrake (8.0 actually) on a P-Pro 200. Been
running and in heavy use for 88 days straight now without a reboot or
clich. Suprisingly snappy as well, considering the speed of the
processor. All-SCSI drives makes all the difference I guess. =)
