Yah ... I got the nice bound version... it has a cool looking cover :-)

It's also available at technical book stores... I got mine at Computer
Literacy in San Jose, CA.  Powell's Technical Books in Portland, OR. should
have it, too, and I know they have on-line ordering.

That's basically the jist, yes.  The other CPUs won't pester you until you
wake them up.  I haven't yet read far enough into the book about delegating

OSDI this weekend, so I'll read about the CHRP SMP stuff on the plane :-)
