Julia,

That would be great if you could host it and potentially someone else could pair it up by donating another box. Would you be at all inclined in managing it from the standpoint of checking it out to openmosix developers for a few days at a time so they can use it without trampling on each other? An 8 way box like that would extremely useful to anyone working on validating and making sure the OM code is SMP safe.
