dual CPU ?

so the kernel on the install cd works, but the one it boots into is
broken ?  doing the install with rpmarch=i586 as a boot option
should work around that.  It does mean that you'll be stuck in
single processor mode for now though. (unless you try the
experimental 568-smp kernel I put on http://people.redhat.com/davej
post-install)

The pentium pro should be more than capable of running the 686-smp
kernel though (and in fact, I did an install on a 4-way proliant 5000
a few days back, which went fine).
