A few kernel versions back I was trying to capture video from my MiniDV 
camcorder and then edit the video.  When I tried it in SMP, the system 
would either hang, kernel panic, or reboot.  None of those things 
happened with the uni-processor kernel.  I'm running a P4 3GHz with 

I haven't had time to mess with the video editing for the last six 
months, so thing might have been fixed.  But my last experience with the 
SMP kernels was less than stellar.
