[CentOS] Kernel ELsmp vs EL

Hi all,  

I'm not very used to CentOS and Linux generally speaking, though I read
a lot and 'man' quickly became a very good friend of mine, right after
Google, so sorry if that's a ridiculous one! (at least it'll give you a
good laugh!)

I updated the kernel to 2.6.9-42.0.2 recently and that raised a
question... Simple... Yet silly...! What exactly is the difference
between 2.6.9-42.0.2EL and 2.6.9-42.0.2ELsmp? It seems the default
install was the 'smp' kernel, but as I had to change the grub config I
stumbled across this one and... started wondering... 

Cheers for your time!
