New box is up and running

The amd athlon 64 x2 4600 was waiting for me at home last night.  I finally got around to putting it in the box and powering the box up about 9pm last night.  Got fedora core 6 loaded and started downloading updates.  Updates were coming down very fast thanks to my cable modem getting a new config and now I have 5meg down 512kb up.  Very nice.  Let updates apply and turned it off about 10:30pm.  Will continue working on it tonight.  This is the first linux box I have had two cores on.  Was fun watching top looking at what each core was doing during the updates.  This makes me want to spend the 109 dollars on a amd athlon 64 x2 3800 for my other box.  Then I could put that 3500 into something when I feel like upgrading my last box.  I am almost to the point of just getting rid of all of my intel stuff.  Just have two motherboards and processors left.  One I am not using at all.  Just sitting there.  The other is my 2003 box.  Not sure if I am going to make a virtual machine out of that or what yet.  So this weekend should be a good one if all goes well.
