problems with this on our PIII machines. They don't seem to like 1.4 at

have lam setup on the machines for the first while and were still having

*** Two of the machines have reported processor mismatch errors on

So in summary, I think we have a serious cooling problem, although it is
disturbing to see other people having problems when the temperature is
fine... I guess we'll buy xeons next time :)
