Generally speaking, distro writers will prepare kernel-images for all the major setups: lots of memory, not-so-much; multiple CPUs, one. And so on.

One of the pet peeves that I've had with some of them is that they tend to "install the world." Lots of packages and images that you don't need and will never need. You usually can pare this down to win back a little disk-space, but it's not always obvious how to do it.
