Let me see where to start. I recently received a pair of atx dual processor motherboards.
One of them is dual 500 socket sevens. The other is dual 256 socket eights? I've personaly never heard of socket eights, but that isn't my question.

I know I can run Windows NT 4.1 and up, and get usage of both processors. I am not familiar enough with how dual processors actually work. But I am ready to learn. Is there a distro of *Nix that will support the dual processors? Any good refrences, tuts, and or good advice. If I can use *Nix and further my personal experiences, great.

Okay time for the bribe, any good advice will get some greenies

Thanks to all
Be safe and stay free
