I acquired a Dell Optiplex DGX 5133 with dual processors.  Linux kernel
2.2.12-20 does not seem to recognize the second CPU.

Searched with Ask Jeeves, Alta Vista, Google and I have not found
anything.

Any experience with this system?  Please e-mail me.

Thanks in advance,

Michael P. Nugent

1. What CPUs does it use? SMP only works with Intels.
2. Have you recompiled the kernel after making sure the SMP option, and
other options needed by SMP, are turned on?
3. What distribution of linux?

1. Trouble with RedHat 5.1 boot disk on a Dell Optiplex DGX 590 (cant load initrd.img)

I am trying to install RedHat 5.1 on a Dell Optiplex DGX 590, but I cant
load the file "initrd.img" from the boot disk. The machine boots OK from
the boot disk and I get the installation menu. But after pressing
<ENTER>, I get:

boot:
Loading initrd.img...

The loading begins, but the machine hangs after 2 seconds with the
floppy drive light remaining on .

I've tried two different machines (same hardware model), and two
different floppy disks. Same result.

I can boot with this disk on other hardware model (I tried on a Dell
Optiplex GXpro and on a DECpc XL590). Furthermore, the RedHat 5.0 and
Debian 2.0 boot disks work both on the machine.

Any hints?
