Both SMP and regular kernels - FC 2


I have a strange situation.

When I installed FC 2, I had just kernel 2.6.5-1.358. Later, to try and get the NVIDIA driver working, I downloaded and installed the 8kstacks version.

When 2.6.6-1.427 came out, yum update downloaded and installed both the regular and the 427smp kernels. And when 435 came out, the same thing happened.

Now I didn't worry about it much - I never boot the smp kernel. But I found that when recompiling the Broadcom driver (tg3 still doesn't work for me with the Cisco VPN software), it wouldn't work until I had copied bcm5700.ko into the equivalent kernel/drivers/net directory under the smp kernel as well.

I have googled on this with no luck.

Anyone have any ideas beyond just starting over from scratch? Did yum get confused when I had the 8kstack kernel installed? Or is it something else?
