I suspect, if your referring to Centos 4.x it is the same as the
kernel-smp kernel.  Before RHEL 4, there was a kernel-BOOT kernel and
that is what anaconda used, but it is not built anymore.

Note, though, I'm only telling you what I suspect and not what I know
for a fact.  If you posted this question on the anaconda-devel list
someone there would know the answer for sure.
