Does anyone have any experience with Linux and the new dual-core intel chips? Will the kernel recognize two processors?...

i have a dual processor system (2 x AMD athlon mp 1800+) and the kernel detected 2 processors immediately for me...for several different distros. i've never had a problem with that at all
as techieMoe said, there shouldn't be any problem with the kernel detecting 2 "processors" from a pentium, or amd, dual-core system

The computer department of my uni has the new Pentium D's running on Debian albeit the 32-bit version. So far I haven't seeen any problems with it and it is really quite fast.
And as long as your kernel has SMP compiled in it will detect the 2nd processor.Life is complex, it has a real part and an imaginary part.
