Yes

First I installe dthe kernel-smp package on the master node.  I then
edited the lilo.conf to boot the smp kernel.  I ran '/sbin/lilo', then
rebooted it.

I then made the /boot/vmlinuz symlink point to the smp kernel.  After
that, I ran beosetup and told it to create the BeoBoot file.  Then I
rebooted all the slave nodes and everything worked fine.

I had this problem.  Booting into the smp kernel before remaking the
beoboot file seemed to fix it.

I'm not sure.  The default kernel should be decided by anaconda (Red
Hat's installer).
