[Haskell-cafe] Parallelism on concurrent?

Hello all,

  I'm googling around haskell.org to get some deeper knowledge about 
Control.Parallel.Strategies than it is presented on 
BTW, could someone point me to some more deeper doc. about it?

  During googling I've discovered that since GHC 6.6, par, forkIO, and 
forkOS should make the stuff run in parallel if I have more than one CPU 
core. Is that right? I think not, because on my machine only par makes 
the things run in parallel and only during the computation (GC runs in a 
single thread). If it should work, how can I verify that my installation 
is correct? If it should not work, will it be working someday?

  Thanks for your patience, responses, and tips
