OK, here's the current state of play, suggestions needed.
I did a clean install of Redhat 6.1 on a HP Vectra Dual Processor Pentium
I fixed /etc/lilo.conf to let it see the disk properly for boot up.
When Redhat 6.1 installs on a Multiprocessor box, it install two kernels
and two modules directories.
When I boot off the single processor kernel, everything is fine, excpet I
can't see the second processor.
When I boot off the multi processor kernel, the boot locks up where marked
