    Dear Kernel People,
    A friend of mine has a new PC with an ASUS CUV4X-D motherboard
    and dual 1GHZ PIII's. We have installed RedHat 7.1. The original
    RedHat SMP kernel (2.4.2) did not boot; it froze with some complaints
    about APIC. The backup single processor kernel 2.4.2 booted o.k.,
    however. The upgraded kernel from RedHat (2.4.3) also refused to boot
    properly - the boot up will start and the screen will then go blank
    before I can discern any informative messages. I also downloaded the
    latest 2.4.6 kernel which had the identical problem, and then I also
    applied the latest Alan-Cox patch for 2.4.6 which did not solve the
    problem. The 2.4.6 kernel will boot when only a single processor
    is used, however.
    The system is fairly basic - no sound card, ADAPTEC SCSI card (nothing
    attached for now), 1 GB PC133 RAM, 2 60 GB IDE Harddrives (1 Maxtor, 1 IBM),
    CD and CDRW, GeFORCE 2 MX video card, 3Com 3c59x ethernet and not much else.
    Specs for the motherboard are at:

    Any idea as to how we might get the dual processors to work? My next plan
    is to compile the kernel without the Pentium III optimizations...

    Thanks,
    B.D.
