Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 5772
SMP not detected on IBM netfinity 5000, 5500

SMP is not detected on IBM netfinity 5000, 5500 on install.
you must install the smp kernel and create a new initrd to
successfully have smp running.
Known problem that we are not going to be able to fix, as these machines are
presenting themselves as UP machines. I have added this issue to a list for
future features, so hopefully something will happen that will allow the
installer to correctly probe the machine.
Did 6.2 help with this problem any?
I've just checked in a more aggressive SMP detection function. It should help
in the next release.
