Added to the Wiki:

It's even easier to add SMP, but I haven't had a chance to write that one up
yet.

Mark,

	I also added SMP support yesterday for this Dell 2500 since it has
dual processors... Adding RAID and SMP support is something that you need a
monowall build environment for.  

	I'll see if I can document the process...

Paul

You should make this change available to every one or at least get it 
added to the standard monowall install.

If you can't do that, a HOW-TO in the  monowall wiki would be a great 
idea :-)
