Are you sure this isn't a custom kernel? louisa.home.local looks 
suspicious. Could you get info on the RPM that it came from to get the 
vendor and build host?

This is what I expect from a stock Centos kernel.

Are they exactly the same version of centos with all updates applied?

Would it be at all possible for you to try running the SMP kernel on the 
non-SMP system or vice versa? It should work fine, the only disadvantage 
would be that you can't use the second processor with a non-SMP kernel.

Thanks very much! Will get back to you with more questions later.
