What do I actually do with a PPC/060

Ok, 10 years after getting my sticky mitts on an A4000, and 18months after acquiring a PPC/060, it's finally all assembled (well, bar the tower and motherboard expansion) and *working*.

So what do I actually do with it? (no, I'm not "donating" it to *you* <g>)

What do I need to install to take advantage of the PPC? I sorta missed out on everything Amiga from 95 onwards, lost track of WarpOS, PowerUp, PIOS, Morph, etc. Do I need to install Warp, for example? What is it, anyway?

What software/libs etc do I need to install to take advantage of the PPC? I think I understand that it switches between processors on the fly, for optimised software. True? What needs installing to do this?

Oh, and what is the best "sysinfo" type tool that I can use to sit back and drool over the speed???
