I downloaded, configured and compiled 18.104.22.168
and it halts booting and says
soft lockup detected on CPU#0!
Pid: 1, comm: init
The rest i will have to write down if it's essential.
I can still send keys like reboot and it will switch RL ok, but it just doesn't proceed past this error

I used these commands to compile the kernel :
fakeroot make-kpkg --revision=custom.1.0 kernel_image
dpkg -i kernel-image-22.214.171.124_custom.1.0_i386.deb
(it gave me an error out about missing the initrd file)

Hmmm, I'm no expert at either Debian or Xeon systems, but I have an observation/question. Why do you have 'append=noapic' in the lilo config? My understanding is that the APIC marshalls interrupts between cpus on a multi-cpu system, it's better than having both processors try to respond to the same interrupt. If it is turned it off (as it is in your system), you might find that one of the processors could lock up waiting to process an interrupt that has already been handled by another cpu...Linux user #126863 - see http://linuxcounter.net/
