In centos5, there is no longer a separate smp kernel. It's supported
directly within the main distribution kernel now. If you're using an
smp system, you'll see SMP listed in uname -a.

This was a change in the main kernel tree as well, though I don't
recall the exact version this started. I think around 2.6.16 or so.
