...re: updating a single cpu to dual G4
I need a little advice, I have a G4 400 Gigabit model with Revision 8
motherboard which supports multiprocessors. I recently got a dual 500
board and installed it but the G4 won't boot. No bong, nothing. It
powers up, the power light comes on, and then nothing. I have tried
pressing the PMU (cuda) switch and still no boot. Any ideas?
I re-installed my single processor several times successfully, but the
dual refuses to work.
I am assured that this board works. Am I missing something. Any mac
Gurus with any idea?

Hello, I have a conceptual question. I need to write a program that
will take as input a list of images and then process each image
individually (extract useful features from the image)
Processing each image takes about 20 seconds, and I would like to
utilize all available cores / CPUs on a machine to do processing in
parallel - for simplicity, I think it'd be easier for now to have each
core process an individual image (rather than have all cores
processing one image in parallel).
The question is, how easy is it to do this? Are there good third-party
parallel extension libraries or do I...Opteron dual/ dual core rig anyone?

What type of video card do you have? Both ATI's and nVidia's latest
generation cards (GeForce 3 and up) normally support dual monitors right out
of the box as long as they have some combination of VGA/S-video/DVI. ATI's
is called Hydravision and nVidia's is called TwinView.
I've actually used TwinView on my GeForce4 Ti 4200 using two 17" CRTs. One
monitor was connected to the VGA port and the other one was connected to the
DVI using a DVI to VGA converter. Setup for the GeForce card was completely
painless. I downloaded the driver from nVidia's site, installe...Dual-boot IIe?

...Dual *external* monitors with laptop?
I'm looking to replace my desktop PC with a laptop. I'm used to

monitor support. I'd like to be able to keep these two monitors and use
them in the exact same configuration as I use them today with my desktop
PC. A docking station of some sort sounds appropriate, but I'd like to
use my standard keyboard and monitors and just leave the laptop closed
and out of the way (in the docking station) while I'm at my desk.

I'm a mid-level noob, and I'm trying to better understand the bootup
process. I learned rdev tells your kernel where to find the root
filesystem. So the kernel must mount that filesystem on / (how does the
kernel know what mount options to use here?). After mounting the root
fs, Linux can now access /etc/fstab. So why does fstab need a line for
how to mount root, if the kernel somehow already mounted root

Currently my Laptop runs WinXP because of all the "Win-only" work related
software I must use. (Yes I know, it sucks! ) But I am really dying to have
a Linux installation too. I tried Win emulators on Fedora before but they
don't work so well as a native installation of WinXP. I could have a dual
