i have an old server using as a file server. was running win XP pro, but don't feel like activating then the os disk failed. so now i just want to use linux i'm prety sure. but tryed linux boot and they error out. its a SCSI system so may need linux drivers, if so how to i load them? system has 4 CPU 2X p3 xeons with 2 cpus in each. would like to use all xp only used 2. 32 bit system 512 mb ram max is 1GB witch i can add, but made boot slower so removed. is their a limit in linux of CPUs, also for this systm SCSI with 4 CPU any recomended OS to try. i have ubuntu, suse, fedore. the first 2 errored out i only have 64 bit fedora so havent tryed that. considerd free nas, but what i have heared is hard to use. i know a bit about linux so it won't relly be that new.
