You are absolutely right, if this were an option, I'd do it, but this is 
not my machine, a friend asked me to set this up as a filtering bridge 
for him, and I wanted to install an OS that is a) capable of powerful 
packet filtering, b) has good SMP support (otherwise I'd have installed 
OpenBSD and forget, but now that's harsh :-P).
I'll convince the guy to get another machine, but TBH I'd like to try 
out DF in a production environment on a multiprocessor machine.
