Hi all,

I've currently got NetBSD 1.6.2 running happily on an SS20 (obviously 
only using one CPU :). I'd like to be able to use both processors in the 
machine, so I'm trying to get 2.0 working. Unfortunately, after 
compiling it (GENERIC.MP) and attempting to boot the new kernel, it 
comes up with an 'Illegal Operation'. It does the same with -current, 
and the kernel obtained from (from the 20040526 build 
of NetBSD 2.0).

I've got two SM50 CPUs (the PROM reports as 2 x 390Z50); NetBSD fails with:
Booting netbsd
3075968+100180+329476 [189856Illegal Instruction

Any help would be most appreciated :) Or pointers if it turns out I'm 
doing something stupidly wrong here.
