Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 23194
Incorrect kernel (UP) used by boot disks

I have an SMP machine.
I installed beta1, electing to install every package. Upon rebooting, I
a single processor kernel had been chosen by the installer! RH7.0 gave me
SMP enterprise kernel.
In case it matters, I did a slightly non-standard thing in my install. I
to install lilo (I already have one). I elected to create a boot floppy
use that to launch RH7.1beta1.
Assigning to a developer.
Bootdisks always use the uniprocessor kernel -- this is a bug.
This defect is considered MUST-FIX for Florence Gold release
As bootdisk's are designed primarily for rescuing systems, we're not going to
fix this. If you want a boot disk with a different kernel, use the mkbootdisk
command to generate one ('man mkbootdisk' for details).
