    That's what I expected!

    Yup, it's compiled for SMP -- or, at least, I selected that option in make
    menuconfig... ;) The boot reports:

    Dec 15 11:51:18 Tycho kernel: Linux version 2.5.51 (root@Tycho)
    (gcc version 2.95.4 20011002 (Debian prerelease))
    #11 SMP Sat Dec 14 21:40:42 EST 2002

    But later in the boot, it also states:

    Dec 15 11:51:18 Tycho kernel: SMP motherboard not detected.

    Something just doesn't look right about this.
