Yeah, CentOS should be the host
but i need my SLI video cards for COD. I was just testing out a proof of concept.. researching cobbler.
Imagine how fast that box would be running 64bit CentOS... wow.
Further info on IO APIC....
"There are two components in the Intel APIC system, the Local APIC (LAPIC) and the I/O APIC. The LAPIC is integrated into each CPU in the system, and the I/O APIC is used throughout the system's peripheral buses. There is typically one I/O APIC for each peripheral bus in the system. In original system designs, LAPICs and I/O APICs were connected by a dedicated APIC bus. Newer systems use the system bus for communication between all APIC components."
