    SubjectRe: Problem activating multiple cores ONLY if I press any key before kernel is loaded
    Ah! I see you are from Redhat. So who, if any, would be likely to fix this?

    This might not be the right list to ask this question, but since I
    already started a thread -- how do I make sure the same config options
    as the Fedora 9 kernel are turned on when I make a vanilla kernel
    build? Well other than checking each one individually in menuconfig.

    Thanks,
    SK
