	Great, another positive report,  I guess I'll make the leap and try
soon (also another EM64T reference - I guess Intel *did* change the designation
for marketing - odd the Oct. Intel price list, when they first were listed,
clearly says "EMT").  I have a few old P3's and older Celerons, that are now
overworked  for the tasks assigned to them (an even a few K6's and Athalons,
but not in critical functions).

	Thanks everyone for the answers, I guess it does "just work" (noone
has reported any problems except the serial port strangeness Havard had,
which I would chalk up to the many strange things that can happen with serial
consoles - I use a set of rack-mounted cascadable KVMs after giving up on
serial consoles in about the 1.4x time frame).
