All reasonably recent kernels support smp. However, the option must be turned on during kernel config. Most prebuilt kernels will include this. If you are running something like gentoo where you build your own kernel, make sure to turn on the smp option.
What you need to do is use synaptic to download a new kernel. I think MEPIS produces a line of kernels with and without smp support, you need the one with. Just search for kernel, and hopefully which one you need will be obvious. The apt-get install <package name> or do it through synaptic.
Thought so also but did some checking around and found out I need to change some files in grub so it'll load correctly. Any suggestions for how to get into "grub" from the desktop? That's my project for tommorrow, that and figuring out how to get BIONC for seti running. I have three more days to get this working before I runout of time on my Win2003 server trial version.
This is what I found :

You need to configure grub to load the 126.96.36.199 kernel. Just copy all of the lines for the 2.6.10 kernel and paste them replacing 188.8.131.52 for anything reading 2.6.10.
