Hi All,

Well, YMMV, but I have an old (really old) digital 2x166 MHz p5 with a 
5 disk raid running solaris 9 as my backup server.  I ended up putting 
solaris on it because it was the only OS that supported the (limited) 
MP and the mylex raid card.   So far, Ive had no problems with it at 
all - its been slow (what do you expect) but rock-solid.  SMP seems to 
be supported right out of the box, no trouble.
