SMP support is not only still broken, it's also disabled - Haiku should 
boot fine on SMP machines, just like Windows 98 (by utilizing only one 
CPU) ;-)
To find out what's going wrong, the best thing you can have right now 
is a serial debugging cable. If you don't have that, you currently 
can't do much about it, sorry (on-screen debug output will come later 
as well).
