People with "true" SMP CPUs can have problems as well. Does this mean
SMP CPUs are not SMP capable? If only one person is having problems,
chances are there's a problem someplace. Could it be a faulty
motherboard? Mismatched CPUs? Bad memory? Bad CPU? Bad power
supply? There's an awful lot of variables here.
