Two choices created for Fedora Core in Grub

I am installing Fedora Core on a dual-boot system with an ASUS P4P800 motherboard. I have 2 hardrives, the first with WindowsXP and the second which I am installing Fedora Core. After the install is finished my Grub bootloader login screen shows me 2 seperate choices for logins for Fedora Core and 1 for WindowsXP
The difference of the 2 Fedora choices are "-up" at the end of the kernel version.

choice 1 = Fedora Core-2.4.22-1.2115.nptl
choice 2 = Fedora Core-2.4.22-1.2115.nptl-up

Why does it create the 2 logins?
What is the difference?

Open /boot/grub/grub.conf and see if they both load the same kernel, that might tell you something.
