SubjectRE: Linux 2.4.7 Oops in SMP kernel with multiple video cards.
I have not received a reply to either of my two bug reports.
Investigating, I have found a little more out. Basically
It comes down to the two video cards. When I boot with PCI
as the primary card Linux crashes. When I set it to one card
then it boots. The problem occurs with all kernels at least from
2.4.6 - 2.4.9.

The kernel does get past the Synchronization, etc, just fine.
I have tried both FB and non-FB code. I suspect that it is a
initialization interation issue since I can boot non-SMP kernels fine.
Is there anything that I should do to narrow this down more?

I would appreciate any help with this. I have not yet had a response
the mailing list.


## Basic info.
