I'm not saying this is your problem, but a few years ago I had a VP6
that worked in single CPU mode but not dual with NetBSD 1.6.
Eventually, after having it lock up periodically, I gave up and ran
it as a single CPU machine. That lasted a couple of months before
the CPU0 socket failed entirely and the machine stopped booting at all.
No smoke. No noise. The board/cpu was just plain bad, and there was
no indication before it let go for good that this was the case.
