My test was run on a Win 2000 box with dual 900 Mhz P3's.  At least
that's the configuration as best I can tell.

cat /proc/cpuinfo under Cygwin claims they are 794 Mhz but the
stepping information shows that they are really 900 Mhz.

So I could have some threading going on that is not HyperThreading.

Do you want them for my install?

You could put a USD500 Linux box on a monitor switch, VNC to it and
make up the money spent in more efficient use of time. :)
