Issues with fedora 7 say that I should set my boot options to read
The problem is I have no idea where or how to do this. Any ideas?

nano /boot/grub/menu.lst

On the:


line of the entry, after everything that's already there:


Optionally, you can hit 'e' for edit at the grub menu on boot, drop down to the kernel line, hit 'e', and add 'maxcpus=1' to see if it works. This will way of issuing boot parameters will not persist on reboot. So, you need to add it to the /boot/grub/menu.lst file if it does work, or edit the kernel line every boot.
