Huh. Well, I have two dual Athlon systems, one on a Tyan Thunder K7
board and one on a Tyan Tiger MPX board, both are rock-solid (and both
running a strain of Red Hat -- one Fedora Core, one Red Hat Enterprise
Linux). One of them doesn't like USB keyboards at all (the Tiger), but
outside of that, both run just fine. I'm using nothing but ECC RAM in
both, and each one runs a pair of actual Athlon MP 2000+ processors
(I'm eying dual 2800s for one of them though... ;-).
I seem to recall one of them having some issues before updating the
BIOS, but outside of that, no problems.
