| 	And the numbers I gave were using 4 processors, not 2.  As I
| mentioned it was running at about 50% of it's rated speed (i.e., about
| 200 mhz per processor, or a little less).   

What OS are you running?  That might give some clues.

| cache, I'm sort of curious what the memory requirement of it is.  In
| this particluar system, the memory subsystem is running at a pathetic
| 66mhz.  

Actually, I believe on P-IIs (plenty of L2) vs. old Celerons (no L2),
the keys/MHz doesn't change noticeably.  By that argument, the Xeons
shouldn't improve the keys/MHz any over P-IIs.
