    Dual Processors


    I have acquired the following unit to play with at home:

    A 4U rack mounted server with 2 removable hard drive bays running Dual 700Mhz P3 Processors. 768Mb Memory, 2 x 35Gb SCSI Hard Drives, USB, Lan, Floppy, SCSI Card, CD Drive.

    The problem is which Linux software to start with, as I can find no information for compatibility of dual processors.

    Ps. Total newb and gagging to get started with Linux.

    Pick any distro.. they all come with multi proccessor support. I reccomend gentoo

    http://www.gentoo.org

    or if that is too much like jumping in the deep end then suse is a good alternative
