I have a dual Xeon 2.8 GHz with HT and it runs FreeBSD 5.3-R. The  
processors and HT are no problem at all and are running fine.

I have some problems with my SCSI controller though. It's an Intel SRCU42X  
and uses the amrd0 driver. X locked up and I had to reboot the machine  
because the keyboard could not be used, after the reboot fsck runs in the  
background but it stays in "getblk" state forever, and the filesystems are  
not flagged clean.

I know that it's not a problem with the processors as such, but if you  
have a SCSI controller that uses the amrd0 driver, I'm interested if you  
run into the same problem.


Why do we have two eyes?  To watch 3-D movies with.
