What is RH Linux-up (2.4.20-8) ?


Hi,

Please forgive my absolute ignorance here but --

When I boot up, I get the choice of either

Red Hat Linux (2.4.20-8smp)

or

Red Hat Linux-up (2.4.20-8)

What does this mean?

What is the difference?

Thanks!

i believe the one with -up on it is a kernel update, did u run up2date recently to update your kernel, if you did, this will do that, there is a difference based off of having a new "backbone" to your linux install if you choose the most recent kernel version (the one with the higher numbers)

the smp i have no clue about
