Still putting alternative LAN or no Lan ideas on paper and not pushed for time, since PCSpecialists just advised the new one isn't in Building stage yet!

What I'm wondering about is whether I could still get away with using two machines, whose sole link is the ADSL Router. If that alone comprises a LAN, then please forgive my ignorance.

When running in FPI, I could reduce the display load by running Servinfo on my Laptop; no LAN connection required.

On the "Flying" PC, I could accomodate, on the screens, FS9, FSNav and ATOC. That would leave the offscreen loads from ASv6 and ATOC, that could theoretically move to a LAN connected Laptop. However, with a dual core processor, will I need to that? I know that FS9 itself isn't written with dual processors, or HT, in mind but won't the system be capable of running FS9 on one and the ancillary progs on the second processor?

Does the second machine share monitors with the first?
