Hello all! I'm a fairly experienced UNIX user, just getting into Linux - would appreciate some assistance with a quick query if possible.

I'm using Red Hat Linux Advanced Server 2.1, kernel version 2.4.9-e.34enterprise. Does anyone know if this kernel version will support the four processors the server is running with? I notice on boot-up that a seperate 2.4.9-smp option is available, and I was wondering if I have to choose this to enable the multi-processor capability? I would hate to have four shiny processors, and the operating system only utilising one of them!

Thanks for your help!
