Hello, and thanks to everyone (especially Robin) who responded to my
questions about geting Bro configured on an Ubuntu system.

Now that we have Bro running, we would like to be able to run more than
one copy to take advantage of a multi-core machine.  We are working on the
theory that assigning separate copies of Bro to different processors may
improve performance if we separate some of the tasks that each copy needs
to perform.

We tried simply copying the bro.rc file and calling it bro2.rc, but this
doesn't work.  We're a bit new at this, so any help would be appreciated.
