Question about YDL...

I click-searched on their website but did not see an answer to this: Is YDL altivec enhanced? Has TSS rewritten any of the kernel or server[s] code to make use of altivec? Just curious. All I have heard is that it seems to run slowly. I had YDL on an old machine, at least 4 years ago. It was installed on our "original" iMac. It seemed nice to me, but I don't remember much about it. I probably still have the CD lying around.

As far as the product goes... I wish they provided more information about the configuration. For instance, 1 X AGP... what does that mean (I know, 1 AGP port - but is it 4X or 8X)? Anyway, I am glad pegasos (sp?) is selling their boards. It's a good thing.
