Thanks Otto,

Perhaps I should rephrase this for others:
1. I never expected anything from redhat, only requested it. I assumed
that people other than redhat staff read and reply to this list.
2. All I want to know, is that why when I create the kernel from an RPM,
it does not create the smp version.
3. How can I make the rpmbuild create a kernel using the kernel source
with an smp version.
