Indeed. I've installed Gentoo on a couple of SMP boxes, and it Just Works, as long as you remember to build the kernel with SMP support. You don't even *have* to use MAKEOPTS="-j<number>", but if you don't, you won't exploit more than one processor while building things. -- gentoo-alpha@g.o mailing list
