I'm no 330/540 expert, but in the limited research I've done on these
machines, I have heard that SMP only functions on these machines with
the original SGI Windows NT load, which could then be upgraded to
2000 or XP and preserve SMP functionality. Again, this is hearsay
on my part, but it makes sense given the proprietary-ness of these
SGI PeeCees. - Mike
