Tyan for dual-AMD, and Tyan/Supermicro/Intel for dual-Xeon. But, if you have speaking relationship with the client, perhaps you can convince them that single-CPU is better route to go, ie. more motherboard choice, faster cpu, faster development, no memory/cache contention, etc. -- William Park, Open Geometry Consulting, <email@example.com> Linux solution for data management and processing.
