which boot option?

I have a p4 with hyperthreading and 1GB of RAM, the following options are shown in LILO, which option should I be using to get the best performance?

Linux Enterpris
Linux SMP

I understand enterpris is for 1GB or greater of RAM and SMP is for multiple processors, but what if you have both ?

Since your Processor is hyperthreaded you should choose Linux SMP which would load a kernel capable of utilizing the symmetric multiprocessing capability of the processor.

Hope this helps
