[K12OSN] 64 bit Intel with HT or 64 bit AMD dual core?

Hi, I forgot to mention that I'm looking for horsepower to run more than 80 
clients at the same time... While also providing NIS and home dirs via nfs.  
My current system is currently running 45 to 55 clients using IceWm, nis and 
nfs using a twin mp 2 point something with 4 gigs on one 1gig nic.

Man,  is RAM cheap right now.


I think you would be just fine with just a regular P4. However, since you 
want the 64bit technology (which I don't think will be utilized very well by 
K12LTSP) I would go with the AMD with dual core but either would work fine.
