yeah, you're right, it's there and now i remember i went through it a 
few months ago when i was configuring my first bsd installation. (i'm 
sorry, my memory is not very good anymore.)

the reason i skipped it is most likely that it's under section "SMP 
Debugging Options" which didn't sound to me to be (useful) for my 
laptop. i'll try it now.

thank you all for you responses!
