That's correct, the netinstall CD includes only a single kernel for the
common case.  The normal usage is to install using the UP kernel and install
the SMP kernel package afterwards, or else to install from a full-CD image
that includes the SMP kernel.  On alpha this is problematic because the
official SMP kernel packages on alpha have trouble with some modules, but
maybe this wouldn't be a problem in your case?
