# Random numbers and processors

I'm working on a few programs that use random numbers as their cornerstone. It makes one random number, then from there, does it's thing. Throughout the program, random numbers keep getting generated, and this works off of the first random number. So, if the program randomized to 0, and then drew up four random numbers (with a choice between 0 and 1), it draws up 0010 -- On my intel, this is true, and on my dad's AMD, this is true. I gave the testing program to my brothers to see the results on a P2 and P3 processor. my question is this. If it is randomized to 0, and the program is ran on a cyrix for example, will the first 4 numbers be 0010, or will they differ?

Thanks.
