Now, the only other tweak I have a burning desire to

Sound right? I would appreciate any tips or help on
getting there, such as:
-> where to check to -know- that it's using
one or both
-> any other useful kernel info
anything would be great really. thanx!

shows both of my CPUs in operation. There should be a section for each
processor. The program xosview will also show what each of the N CPUs are
doing. (Its rather cool to run on a 16 processor Sun server, but I digress).
Finally, check /var/log/boot.msg (is this generic or specific to SuSE?) to see
something like the following:
<4>Processor #0 Pentium(tm) Pro APIC version 17
<4>Processor #1 Pentium(tm) Pro APIC version 17
<4>I/O APIC #2 Version 17 at 0xFEC00000.
