:Is it hard to make so the installer installs an SMP-enabled kernel on 
:request? I'd be glad to see this, and I think the CD has enough free 
:space, too. ;-)

    I have been wanting to do something similar, but at the moment there
    are too many combinations of SMP kernel builds needed to cover
    available hardware.  We'd need a version with and without APIC_IO,
    and an option to not boot with ACPI.  It would be rather confusing.
