i do not understand. what is the problem??

*SMP images merged with non-SMP*. After the release of linux-image-2.6.17-2 the SMP and non-smp images where integrated into

only one image. After this you will no longer find images like
linux-image-2.6.16-2-686-smp and linux-image-2.6.16-2-686 but only one image that will detect at run time the presence of a SMP system and enable or disable the SMP code:

There are many machines which refuse to boot with such kernel.
Even the Sarge/Etch Netinstall-CD refuse to boot.

I had to create my own SMP-free Install-CD which was nor realy funny.
