Nptl is the new posix threading model - Redhat started shipping
it with RH9.   If you do a 'yum update' you'll get
2.4.22-1.2188.nptl.  Smp is for multiple processors, bigmem is
for more than 4 gigs of ram.

I thought your problem might have been that /boot was out
of space but I see from your other message that wasn't it.
