Going to try bsd for my intel 64 bit. Does the kernel support things by default such as smp (hyperthreading) and raid / scsi? Also not really the same subject ...

    Go to http://freebsd.org and read the handbook. You will have happy feelings.

    Upgrading the "system" is a process done by doing a CVS update of the system source and rebuilding it. It's not for the faint of heart, but it's also not as scary as it sounds. It's worth taking the time to learn about some of the build options that you can specify in your /etc/make.conf that will help make the system a better fit for both you and your machine. If you're just talking about the kernel, it's a similar process (make sure you customize it--GENERIC is too bloated and slow), but a little more hands-on.

    Basically, RTFM

    In that case, you'll want to look at the ia64 port.
