FC5 seems keen to get me to run the smp kernel (I'm on a uniprocessor
machine without hyperthreading).  I've noticed with this update (since
the smp kernel runs - the one that came with the original install
didn't) that the smp kernel seems to be noticeably slower than the
non-smp kernel.

I'm not getting any of the kernels installed to boot without adding a
selinux=0 to the boot process.  I don't think this is kernel related,
but something to do with selinux.  The kernels get to the point where X
starts and the cursor appears and then nothing else happens.  Dropping
to the vt (CTRL-ALT-BACKSPACE) shows the hardware initialized, and then
no further progress.
