Default Dual Socket 478 boards?

Do any of you guys know if there is a dual socket 478 motherboard anywhere in the world? I've searched with no luck at all. I've read a few postings here and there that say a Tyan dual Xeon board will work...I'm not willing to waste the money without knowing for sure. Thanks for any help you guys can give me on this.

there are no dual socket 478 boards. and they cannot be made either. It is because of how Intel designed the Pentium 4. It cannot run with another CPU.

the only dual systems from Intel you can get are the Xeon's

Dual CPU is not the way to go anyway, Dual Core on the other hand ...

as apok said there is no support for multiple processors on the s478 platform. no a xeon board will not work because it is a different socket
