The O2000 doesn't support 2048 CPUs. They've just delivered a 256 CPU
system, and they have had plenty of trouble with joining 2x64 -> 128

The 2000+ node systems they sell are Cray T3Es, which scale better and
have better CPUs (Digital Alpha, with a few additions). Too bad they
won't do a T3F with the 21264...
