Question SMP problems


On my dual PIII 1 GIG (ASUS cuv4x-d) i tried installing all the distros i got, none of them seems to like this board in some distro like mandrake red hat icepack the installation is ok but when booting i have to boot in failsafe or it won't boot at all. In SUSE when installing i have to select failsafe to install if i choose normal there won't be any display.
if anyone has any idea of a way around this, it will be most appreciated
