I've run MandrakeClustering on this kind of hardware with a 2.4.19
(patched by the Mandrake kernel team) and the error you're talking has
never been reproduced.
The only problem I had was some troubles with the apic (noapic should be
given  to the cmdline) but the lastest stable bios (1.72) gives a lot of
fixes for Linux and the noapic features is no more needed.
