We we're sent (by mistake) 16 Tyan 2460 motherboards with XP's instead of 
MP's  ... they all installed and booted OK but under load I couldn't get any 
4 board subset of them to complete any of our test suites without at least 
one locking up ... after much anguish and, after replacing all 32 cpu's with 
MP's everything was fine ...

So my recommendation is DON'T DO IT!   :-)
