Hello Rajkumar,

Sorry for being curious, are you named after the "annavru", btw?

If you buy Tyan, you have a pretty good chance to get LinuxBIOS running
on the boards. The S4880 and S4882 are the two Quad boards supported
from Tyan. 

There's another Quad board from Iwill which is equal to, or at least
very similar the the agami aruma board.

Otoh, if you are going to get a couple of nodes anyways for a cluster,
you might want to go with the cheaper 2cpu (and maybe dualcore) systems.
