There may be quite a lot of differences between the two. Each kernel is made for a type of processor. The SMP is for newer multiprocessor systems while the other is a generic 32 bit processor kernel. The kernels may have quite a lot of modules, you'd have to look at the RH site for complete information.

Why did it take me over a year to phone in a problem to ATT?

i386, i486, i586, i686 are all processor types. So as it relates to Linux:

i386 = Intel 386 CPU or better
i486 = Intel 486 CPU or better
i586 = Pentium or better
i686 = Pentium Pro, Pentium 2 or better
