Comment 1 Arjan van de Ven 2002-06-17 16:53:16 EDT
Did you install the SMP kernel ?
The 440GX motherboards have a serious bios bug that requires to use the SMP kernel
Comment 2 Jorge Santiago 2002-06-18 01:23:53 EDT
No, I did not install with Kernel-SMP support - I'll try it now
Comment 3 Jorge Santiago 2002-06-18 02:34:42 EDT
I have installed RedHat Linux 7.3 off NFS with "linux apic" and then added 
Kernel-SMP option. System is working 100%. 
Thank you for your support.
