This is a Linux kernel with built-in support for most disk
controllers. To use filesystems, or to load support for a SCSI or
other controller, then you'll need to load one or more kernel
modules using an initial ramdisk, or initrd. For more information
about creating an initrd, see the README.initrd file in the /boot
SMP is "Symmetric multiprocessing", or multiple CPU/core support.
