Re: "SMP motherboard not detected" with Redhat 9.0 and Proliant 8000

I know this is an old message, but if anybody needs i booted with SMP kernel my Red Hat Linux sucessfully by adding the nomca and noapic option to the kernel.

Also on very old proliant models, you should setup the os type to unixware.
