    Are you using XP Home or Professional? You need Pro for dual processors.

    If you do have Pro, you probably need to update your system a multi-processor HAL

    Yes, I am running WinXP Pro.

    In my travels to finding a solution I saw many o tips for NT and 2000.

    As for the multiprocessor hal thing, how do I upgrade to this? I noticed the halmps.dll is already in my system32 directory - but is there a proceedure to assign it?
