please mark it as such.

This is *not* an SMP system.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

please try adding acpi=off to the kernel commandline ("a" key in grub or the
vmlinuz line in /boot/grub/grub.conf)

Okay, problem resolved.  You know, I probably should have searched RESOLVED bugs
in bugzilla.  Or RTFM.  Thanks for your time.
