Visual Studio 2005 concurrent builds

Does anybody know how to disable Visual Studio 2005's concurrent compile feature? It compiles N files at once (N=# cores on PC, I guess), which sounds useful -- but the compiler output is interleaved. I find this extremely annoying, because you don't get things in order, and I'm not finding the little numbers down the side very helpful (though they are, indeed, better than absolutely nothing at all).

Google has been no help, but I'll freely admit that I don't know the approved terminology for this new feature...

As always, I found the answer shortly after posting, after looking through the options screen again (for what must be the 1,000th time now).

(For anyone who, like me, missed what is in plain sight, it is in Tools|Options, Projects and Solutions, Build and Run, "maximum number of parallel project builds".)
