I get a hda: interrupt lost ONLY when using the SMP kernel.  when i use the regular kernel I don't have any problems.  I am using Red Hat 9 kernel version: 2.4.20-20.9. It tries to recover itself and then finally locks up.  I have gotten this same problem before on a different machine using mandrake.  I have a P4 3.06ghz HT processor, 1gb ram, 60gb HDD.  I only have Red Hat 9 installed on it.  This is a brand new system.  I would be so thankful for an explanation to this, whether its fixable or not.

Thank you!

Since the system works correctly in uni-processor mode but fails in SMP, I'd guess there's a BIOS/implementation problem on the motherboard relating to interrupt steering/delivery. You should check to see if the motherboard vendor has an updated BIOS for this board.

Try to compile your own kernel with the newest kernel source. See the kernel howto on http://www.tldp.org for more information.

For anyone interested in the answer to this.  My laptop uses ACPI and requires ACPI be enabled because of the P4 HT "dual" processor because APMD is not thread safe.

just boot with acpi=on option, put it in your grub.conf file
