Did you install the SMP kernel ?
The 440GX motherboards have a serious bios bug that requires to use the SMP kernel

Comment 2 Jorge Santiago 2002-06-18 05:23:53 UTC
No, I did not install with Kernel-SMP support - I'll try it now

Comment 3 Jorge Santiago 2002-06-18 06:34:42 UTC
I have installed RedHat Linux 7.3 off NFS with "linux apic" and then added 
Kernel-SMP option. System is working 100%. 
Thank you for your support.
