I'm running Gentoo Linux with kernel 2.4.18-xfs on an S2460 with 2 1.2GHz
Athlon MPs with no problems. You mention you battled heat problems. What
kind of case do you have? More particularly, what is the exact model number
of memory you are using? The Tyan board is *extremely* picky when it comes
to its memory.
