Your using the 2.6.9-5.EL-i686.

2.6.9-5.EL-hugemem-i686 = Most likely handles more memory, probably above 4GB or so.
2.6.9-5.EL-i686 = The one your apparently using now.
2.6.9-5.EL-smp-i686 = Compiled specifically for dual or more processor support.

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.
