Yes, make sure this is a supported hardware configuration (i.e., that the BIOS is supported, etc.).

If so, complain to SCO/Caldara.

But beware --- SCO Unix is _D_E_A_D_, so don't expect much action out of them.

Sorry but which version of SCO UNIX are you running (Openserver/UnixWare/Open UNIX)?

When you installed the SMP module did you pick the correct multi-processor support, I would assume it should have been the Intel option for the Dell.

If you can you should also try changing the MP support level in the BIOS to 1.1, they normally default to something like 1.4 which is fine for NT/2000 but I have had a problem with this on UnixWare 7.1.1 but not the error you have seen.
