Mine is a uniprocessor 533Mhz. It is slotted for a second daughtercard,
though. Don't know how much additional processors would cost.

I did build gentoo on a quad-ppro box about a year ago, and I seem to
remember needing to add something to make.conf to get it  to run 4 parallel
gcc processes.

Please do, I want to install Gentoo on mine also. I've been interested for 
awhile as I'm starting to need things that I don't get (easily) with Debian.

Tell me, did you have to do anything special to get the kernel to recognise 
both processors?
