Adding SMP support to kernel

I am still pretty new to linux, and the google searches I have done haven't turned up the information I am looking for. I have Fedora Core 2 installed on a dual P2-450 machine. I know I can just download a smp kernel, but I have to have a program called Snare installed in order to use the machine, so I need to know if there is a way to patch the v2.6.7-1.494 Snare kernel to have SMP support? Or is the only way to do this is to learn more about C programming and make a patch myself?
