The thought did cross my mind.
At the time I was putting the box together, I was also mixing PC133 & PC100 
memory to which I've come to realise that the board is picky about that (also 
found a reference via google that supports that notion).
Currently Im only using the PC133 memory, and what Ill do is try booting up 
with the 2nd processor installed, and pay attention to see where it hangs (it 
was late the other night, and I don't remember if I was trying the 2nd cpu 
with the PC100 memory).
Ill report back on my findings...

Thanks
