Either will work about the same, most likely.

If you build that dual I'd recommend getting your hands on NT4, Win2K will run slooooow on that thing.

naaah, i don't use it...
last day, i test it,
boot begins with fullscreen "IBM PC SERVER" logo,
bios r looking like piece of s***!

my first & only dual cpu mobo,
and it slower than single 233mmx :(
 
dont bother. i found this one page where you could download a floppy image with linux on it, slap that sucker in a 386 with dual nics and route with that. web interface and all. did not have much use for it at the time so i dont have the link. i know someone who is running it and it is fast. he said that you have to use a good nic like a 3com etherlink 3. might have to find that link again.
