[Users] trouble booting with FC6-64

The latest:
During his experiments last night with CentOS, he installed the kernel and
it actually frooze during boot. He then manually downloaded and installed
the SMP kernel, and it worked A-OK. So, we're wondering whether "'yum
install ovzkernel" was installing an inappropriate kernel for a 8-CPU

I'll let him know. Since I always work on remote systems, I've never even
gotten to use the magic key!

I wrote up the install procedure for 32-bit systems, but now he's trying
it on a 64-bit system, so...

The troublesome one is the RPM, installed via "yum install ovzkernel"
under FC6-64 Doing this same thing on 32-bit works perfectly.
