The OP wants to use an X2 (dual core).

With an X2 a Radeon card reliably causes instant reboots on my machine when
running X-Windows. I had to switch to an Nvidia card to stop that.

Disabling SMP cures the problemn, but then there's little reason to be
using an X2, is there?

Unfortunately, I don't get a crash dump and I don't have a serial
console, so I can't say why it happens.

This is running an ASUS A8V Deluxe.
