Xen has been SMP since the very beginning.

Each domain will only see 1 CPU, but Xen should see all of them.

This is what I'd expect -- each domain, including dom0 only sees
one CPU.

Odd. I suspect its having trouble parsing the BIOS tables.

Please can you try connecting a serial line and sending us the
Xen boot output. (On newer Xen versions you can read this boot
output from a ring buffer using domain 0, but I don't think we
had support in 1.1) 

[Alternatively, you could try boot 1.2-rc using the pre-compiled
binaries I posted a link to yesterday]

I doubt 'noht' is causing any harm, but it might be worth
removing it. As long as you don't have 'nosmp'...
