I ended up figuring this one out and I thought I'd share the info.  We
are using Sun v20z servers, and it seems that the bios was the cause.
After updating the bios anaconda now installs the smp kernel.  Does
anyone know what portion(s) of code in anaconda detects the number of
cpu's in a system?

thanks,
Daniel
