    Interrupt routing in APIC mode (SMP turned on) is a complete mess...
    virtually nothing works.  The hard drive on ata0 works, but ata1,
    usb, firewire, and network interrupts do not get properly routed.  I
    was able to get the on-board network working by adding polling support
    to IF_NV (and as a bonus I got it to negotiate at GigE speeds now too).
    SMP itself does work, however, so I am confident that it is simply an
    interrupt routing issue.

I'm probably going to need Joerg's help to get the interrupts routed. I will start diagnosing the issue tomorrow. All I can say right now
is that it is seriously confused.


Is this NForce based ? if so, I'd say good luck to you, why do you want
to buy a closed source machine?  I have already regreted buying one
Nforced based MB. ;-)
