smp means symmetric multi processing.
by default it is compiled in, since linux doesn't use it on a single processor machine.

i had some problems with this before, but i am moving my linux-workstation-harddisk from time to time to a multiprocessor p3, so i had this option set.

sadly removing smp from the kernel didn't change my problems with the latest nvidia drivers...

Heh,
I tried to remove smp from the kernel, but when compiling got a bunch of errors, so I don't know what else I needed to remove.
Once again, I tried to install ACPI, and this lets me poweroff correctly (which is good), but I'm not able to get the nvidia driver to work with it (I get the ascii characters all over the screen)! I'm convinced there must be a bug here somewhere between the nvidia driver and ACPI.

I have a similar problem here with a FreeBSD 4.8-stable system (I'm not sure, but I don't think the problem is FreeBSD's fault). I can start X without a window manager just fine, but it locks up if I try to use a window manager. I can't ping the box so I too have to do a hard shutdown. My system info and logs are here
