Oh, you are right.

I meant MP vs XP part, sorry. From what I gather, MP is no different
from XP, although perhaps "certified for SMP" -- despite costing more
per MHz.

Completely Agreed. I am thinking of getting a dual AMD system for doing
more kernel work (tackle AMD and SMP). My main machine is a P3 now.
