rendering on the dual quad core Dell SC1430

I'm starting to get used to the new rig and what works and what doesn't. Here's a video describing how a render works on the new Dell SC1430, dual quad core xeon box running FC6, 64-bit Cinelerra. The render format (not shown in the video) is the following:
File format: Quicktime for Linux
Audio compression scheme: MPEG-4 audio, 128kbps bitrate, quantization quality 50%
Video compression scheme: H.264, 1000000 fixed bitrate (1Mbps)

I was listening to Aaron Newcomb's SourceShow podcast from LinuxWorld in Ohio while describing the render, so that's the voice you'll hear in the background.

PS - I rendered to Quicktime for Linux in this example, but you can use the
-threads [numberOfCpus]
command line switch to use more than one CPU.
