What kernel are you using to boot this system?  Are you booting from a hard
drive, or from an install CD?

I don't think there is such a thing as a "-nosmp" flag.  There is a "nosmp"
option that can be passed to the kernel; the spelling counts, and it
certainly has to be set in the right place to have an effect.  If you can
post the exact SRM and aboot commandlines that you use, someone might be
able to give you more exact advice.
