    At default, up2date disables Kernel upgrading. You CAN download the kernel itself from ftp.redhat.com or any of the sites on redhat's mirror page (www.redhat.com/mirrors). If you're using !SMP kernels now, I wouldn't advise going to a SMP kernel unless you're 100% positive you know what you're doing and you have hands on access to the setup, otherwise, you will run a serious risk of software / hardware failure.
