Forget about Itanic. Itanic is Intel's latest and the greatest failure.
It's an excellent chip, used only by HP and horribly expensive. AMD's
64 bit chip is kicking Intel's a....rithmetic registers. Your Xeons are qui=
regular 32 bit chips, so you should use normal Red Riding Hood Linux for
32 bit intel x86 architectures.
