try with acpi enabled, it works for me. It's seem that recent kernel (since

It should not - if it does this is a bug, as SMP motherboards that do not
support ACPI will not work.

Looks like we got rid of CONFIG_ACPI_BOOT, his particular system has an incomplete mptable and requires ACPI for proper processor enumeration.

yes, CONFIG_ACPI_BOOT is with 2.6.12.x, not with 2.6.14.x, I edited the wrong file...
