You cant have a dual p4 system, as the chips do not support SMP. Also xeons are not like dual cpus, one xeon is one xeon. Xeons support up to 8 cpu's in smp mode I believe, that is the difference. Also a xeon has a much bigger cache compared to the p4. If you want a dual system you have to go with Celerons, p3's, xeons or various smp compatible amd chips...
I know tyan makes a lot of dual xeon motherboards....
