    SubjectRe: Lockup with 2.2.3 on SMP system
    I had a similar problem with keyboard lockup with a SMP PPro system. 
    It was caused by running APM in my bios. The kernel was not configured with APM.
    It was cured by dumping the APM in the bios. I didn't try configuring the
    kernel for APM
