  Without knowing anything definite, I'd say the latest RedHat is buggy. 
We recently upgraded to a dual processor board, and attempted to get smp 
working. After odd crashes continued, we reverted back to a previous 
version of RedHat have succesfully run smp. No idea if this is anyway 
related, but it might be a clue...
