Hello, Alan.

The installation process is very good at finding out what processors you
have. It will automatically setup the correct SMP kernel for your system,
at least with Intel CPUs. I haven't had the opportunity to test it with
dual Athlon MPs yet, so I can't make any assertions for that platform.

Bye for now,

Yes - but will the installation detect multiple processors and install the
SMP kernal, or do you have to tell it?
