You need only one kernel RPM so please choose the appropriate one depending on your hardware:

  • If your x86 (i686, IA32) machine has more than 4 GB of RAM, choose ovzkernel-enterprise kernel.
  • If there is more than one CPU available (or a CPU with hyperthreading), use the ovzkernel-smp RPM.
  • Otherwise, use the plain kernel RPM (ovzkernel).

For more info, see Kernel flavors.
