There is no kernel that is version 2.6.x AND 686 AND smp. The 686-smp
you see is version 2.4.x, which most people don't use anymore. See this
package search:

Since 6.06 LTS (Dapper Drake), the 2.6.x kernels that are compiled for
686 processors are for both uni- and multiprocessors

Again, only for version 2.4.x. Version 2.6.x has uni- and multiprocessor
support rolled into one (just as for the 686 processors), see
