I am attempting a local install on a dedicated SUSE 10 box built for
this and would like to know if I would be better off downgrading to a
lower SUSE version. Please advise.

Hi Ray,

The more cores the better. So which ever way gets you the most cores per

Additionally, more cores is better for overall throughtput then pure Hz

2 cores at 2 GhZ is better than 1 core at 2.5Hz

Both benifit from more cores. Although generally in a multi-access
server environment like yours, pure processing speed is more important
on the access servers, and memory is more important on the library
