I just upgraded from an ancient version of NetBSD to 5.0.2, loaded the
MP kernel and got a Trap almost immediatly after the kernel worked out
how much memory was active.

After a bit of reading on the NetBSD FAQs it notes that SMP is broken
for sparc after version 4.

I don't know what the problem is. It has been a while since I have
used NetBSD (I am more an Open person) and I am just getting my head
around it.

If you are interested, I'll grab the text from the console.
