just as a heads-up having gone through this first-hand - if you put
a pcmcia-to-pci adapter in your SMP system, expect things to hose -
my poor dual celery's been running a UP kernel forever :(
Now, pcmcia used to not work in SMP *at all* and now it does, but
individual drivers still have SMP issues - both wavelan_cs and orinoco_cs
still have problems for me on an SMP kernel under heavy load. YMMV.
Yes, with a UP kernel they're both rock-solid.
