Hey All,

I was going to use the SMP client through VMware virtual server... but I'm taking it that I'm going to need a 64bit version of XP installed to run it right? Let me know asap please...

Thanks,

As fumbles says, the Linux OS has to be 64 bit, the version of XP is not important (I'm sure most people are using standard 32 bit XP, as I am).

You may have downloaded the 32 bit version of Ubuntu. This post here is an updated version of what I used to get going through VMWare, hopefully it will be of help.

This is the important bit.

As far as I know, all centrino duo (as opposed to Core 2 Duo) are 32 bit and won't be able to run 64 bit Linux.

I have a super M1710 sitting here and can't run SMP on it because it's not 64 bit :(

Stan :)

Ah trollocks I thought that the T2500 was 64bit enabled... there goes that plan then... doesn't mean that I wont be trying it on my 6800 though :)
