You need to enable ACPI for the HyperThreading to be enabled,
apparently. Config option CONFIG_ACPI_HT_ONLY, under general setup.

If you have any problems with the standard kernel, you might have more
luck with the Alan Cox kernel, as it is what Red Hat have based their
kernel on in the past, and is generally better for hardware support on
high end hardware. Note: there is a question mark over the future of
the -ac kernels is uncertain as apparently Alan is retraining.

The -ac patch is at:

on your local ftp.kernel.org mirror.

Vserver patch for that kernel is at:

You will need util-vserver 0.24 rather than Jacque's vserver to
support this kernel, as it is based on an pre-1.1.0 version of the
kernel patch.
