Ok, followup ...
I've installed from scratch, selecting "server", and allowing all
defaults, both FC3 and FC4T3.
Stock, off the CDs, both fail in SMP mode on my motherboard. After
installing all available upgrades via "yum upgrade", both still fail ...
even the much vaunted new 1363 kernel for 4T3.
FC3 simply does the same thing (all IO ceases the second the kernel
inits, so once login arrives it's dead)
FC4T3 sees 3 out of 4 cpus (3 penguins) and instantly reboots.
Anyone got any ideas? I find it absolutely ridiculous that no flavor of
Fedora so far works in smp on my motherboard ... :-( Knoppix boots
right into smp, no problems whatsoever.

It flat out refuses to boot to smp - freezes the instant a login
prompt appears whether in single mode, normal multiuser, or X.
I've backtracked kernels all the way to old FC3 kernels, same thing ...
