It's actually pseudo-colo'd in the house of a local Debian bod right now
(I was low on office space, and those folks seem to like such
crazy hardware).

For the curious, this is the dual P90 that Caldera[*] sent Alan
for SMP development. It's incredibly clunky, weighs a ton, and
in comparison to any of todays hardware, is almost painful to use
for anything serious.

It would be fun to get Fedora on that monster some time though.
I thought we were actually churning out i586-smp kernels, but
I just checked and spotted the exclusion in the spec file.
I'll nuke that, and push one out sometime for folks to play with.
