Interesting... In both NetBSD & linux, I'm getting kernel panics due
to timing issues, so even if it's a supported configuration, either
linux or NetBSD don't love it (and, no, I haven't installed Solaris 
on it yet to confirm. :) ). I'm wondering if it's just a problem with 
one of the two processors then. It's been running off of the 501-4781 
for a year now without issue... maybe I'll swap them out and see if it
goes belly-up after running for awhile with just the 501-5129.

thanks for the info though.
