I think that I have the same card, the nPower 400 (2 604e 200's).

So far I have only been able to boot two SMP kernels on it in R4, my
own 2.2.0pre6 kernel and Charles L.'s (from 2.2.7

When I build another kernel, either from pmac repository or from, I get a crash in kswapd during boot. I'm not sure by I am
beginning to suspect it has something to do with the amount of swap I
have configured. I had lots of problems when I was using the old rule
of thumb 2 x Main Mem + 1 MB, which was about 257 MB for me.  I have
reduced it to 122876 kB and this seems to work better.

I have never been able to boot a SMP kernel using R5.
