Intel's latest spec update says that there's a whole core revision
of the PIII that doesn't support dual-processing.  these are all
fc-pga chips, btw.  perhaps this is just another (remember Celeron?) 
asinine marketing trick to to position the non-Xeon version 
to compete with AMD.

the worst part is that both versions have the same CPUID.
