In all cases, 4 MPI processes on a machine with 4 cores (two dual-core CPUs).

Meteorology program 1, "bolam"    CPU time, real time (in seconds)
       Linux kernel 2.6.9-11.ELsmp     122        128
       Linux kernel 2.6.12.2            64         77

Meteorology program 2, "non-hydrostatic"
       Linux kernel 2.6.9-11.ELsmp     598        544
       Linux kernel 2.6.12.2           430        476

The new information is the kernel 2.6.12.2 that I installed today.
Yes, the new kernel helps quite a bit.
