What are these two boot options?


Newbiew question! My boot offers:

Fedora Core 2 (2.6.5-1.358smp)
Fedora Core 2-up(2.6.5-1.358)

Its on a Dell XPS laptop. Is this something to do with multiprocessing?

Thanks!

The first option is for two or more processors (SMP). The other is for machines with only one processor (UP)

Yeah I was just wondering why it offered the choice, as I only have one processor.

linux kernels will pick up intel hyperthreading processors as multiple. do you have an intel HT proc?

YES! That makes sense too I guess, aren't the HT processors back to back doubles?
