I had also reported and confirmed this bug earlier.  This weekend, I built 
up a test system (Dual PIII-550 w/ Radeon 7000 video)  I booted it with a 
Hardy Alpha 4 server(already on HDD), then used aptitude to install 
kubuntu-desktop.  I was able to startx, and the KDE desktop came up fine. 
I then launched adept, intending to install the 686 SMP kernel to test 
whether the bug was still there or not, and discovered that hardy doesnt 
have a 686 kernel!  In fact, you've taken the 'generic' concept quite far, 
and are using one kernel for x86 and x86_64, UP and SMP alike.
   I ran uname -a, and found 2.6.24-7-server, and ran lshw and found both 
CPUs detected.
   So I guess the bottom line is this bug has been squashed in Hardy.

  Thank you!
