Ubuntu kernel problems on a DL320 G5

I have problem booting a fresh install of Ubuntu (x86) 6.06.1 on a Proliant DL 320 G5 Xeon 2.4GHz

I can boot a 2.6.15-26 kernel _only_ if I add the following kernel parameters: acpi=off nolapic nosmp

If I do not have these paramters the machine resets as soon as the "Booting Kernel" part is reached

I tried upgrading to the newest 2.6.15-28 kernel but it wont boot with any of parameters

So now the system acts like a single cpu unit!

We have another DL320 G5 Xeon (only 2.13Ghz) which doesnt have any of these problems at all

Any help is greatly appreciated

Ubuntu isn't tested and no 'enablement' for Ubuntu is provided by HP, but since Ubuntu is based on Debian, you might benefit from some of the documents/downloads available from --> ProLiant Servers
