SMP in linux is rock solid..what is causing issues is hyper 
threading which fakes a second cpu to try to keep it's excessivly 
long pipeline full.  Get two p-3's or two athlon's or run the two 
p-4's without hyper threading and smp will work just fine. 
Hyperthreading is a godod idea that unfortunatly has to be used 
to patch an inefficient cpu design.

My "Foundation" verse:
Isa 54:17  No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; 
and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou 
shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, 
and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD.
