Well, uni or multiple kernel mode is a initial installation question when you boot the first time (from CD).
I only saw the question at that very moment.
The good news is that you could save your config to a external medium, and redo the initial install.
Make the good kernel choice,
Set up the LAN,
Load the config ,
…and you're up.
Just setting a simple switch and reboot isn't a choice, I think.

You can get the mp kernel from the install cd and copy it over- download it onto the box, use a usb key, mount the cd etc. Then just backup the old kernel and rename it to kernel.gz. Then reboot the box.
Thank Gertjan and dotdash!
