Yum doesn't know anything special about the kernels (aside from the fact 
they should be installed, not upgraded; also some yum setups care to 
deinstall very old kernel packages). So it's up to the user to decide 
which kernel to use. I have just checked installation instructions on 
wiki (http://wiki.openvz.org/Quick_installation#Kernel_installation) and 
they clearly tell a user to select the proper kernel, see:

      Using yum

Run the following command

# yum install ovzkernel[-flavor]

Here |[-flavor]| is optional, and can be |-smp| or |-enterprise|. Refer 
to kernel flavors <http://wiki.openvz.org/Kernel_flavors> for more info.
