Well after much research I have come to the conclusion that the onluy
dual p4 mobos made were xeons.  I have two plain jane p4 (no smp).  I
would love nothing better than to build a new phenom box but I don't
think the wifey will let me get away with it.  Dosn't really matter this
box is gonna be my mythbox so I can't quite justify the expense of
building a completely new system.
