As I wrote in the beginning of the summer, I'm voluntary to test/verify
the build farm construction documentation. For the time being, I have
only an x86 with 8Gb; unfortunately that is the maximum that the mother
board supports :-( but the processor is a quad core Xenon.

IMHO the writer/consolidator of the documentation should be another
person. Do you think that you can do it?
