Opteron machine (dahlia) was a prototype which dr Paulette Clancy got for
evaluation from local computer shop. It had RedHat GinGin 64 operating
system preistalled when I did testing.

I don't remember which kernel was installed when I did benchmarks, I
suppose standard kernel which is coming with GinGin64. Machine should
have SuSE installed now so I cannot check it. I will repeat benchmarks
with PGI 5 64bit compiler and SuSE when I will have some time.
