I can't tell from the web site whether the Free Solaris offer will
support SMP. My recollection is that SCO's Free*Unix license deal is

For a dual P5, I'd say your best bet is Linux 2.2. There are several
distributions in beta right now, and I've heard that they automatically
MP and configure themselves accordingly.
