    You could choose to install it and remove bigsmp, but usually the system
    doesn't give you bigsmp unless you need it or that is the only option.
    Anyway, yast: Software: Search: kernel. May want to have a recovery
    disk handy just in case. ;-) Perhaps a better option is to install smp
    and leave bigsmp and then modify grub to use the one you want (if it
    doesn't do that automatically).

    Good luck.
