I am amazed at the lack of response on 3 different forums. It's a little mind boggling. I'm not going to find an answer so this board goes in the trash. Anyone want a couple of 366 cellies with Thermaltake Golden Orbs? As inactve said, rudeness and lack of civility will get you nowhere. That being ...

I'll tell you what., I ran my site for over 2 years on a BP6 and it never even balked at the setup. But if you are looking for a GREAT server MB get on ebay and find a Tyan 2510 or 2518. I have both and they are just rock solid. They are only for servers though. They take dual P3's have 2-64 bit slo...

What you're talking about(in the origial post) Is somthing called NIC Teaming. Its software that will actually multithread the data path between two nics.
