NetBSD vincent.local 4.99.62 NetBSD 4.99.62 (DELL) #37: Tue May  6 10:26:46 
CEST 2008  vincent%vincent.local@localhost:/usr/src/sys/arch/i386/compile/DELL 
On my DELL Inspiron 530 machine, bundled with a Core 2 Duo CPU,
cpu0: "Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU     E4500  @ 2.20GHz",

the second core will not come ready. The kernel crashes a while after because 
it doesn't expect this behavior.

FreeBSD 7.0 and Linux/Ubuntu happily boot both the second CPU with no problem, 
so it does not seem to be a BIOS issue.

Change BIOS setting to disable MP or boot a UP kernel. This is no fix but a 
ugly workaround.
