So AMD will not give out this info easily or free... Then let us find 
it. Test a system in both states  (Single and Dual) and look at the 
differences. See if we can spoof the system into thinking it has two MP 
CPU's when we have two XP's in the box.  The one question would be 
linuxbios support for the Tyan MPX board or something along those lines.
