It should be detected as an smp setup.
Havenít heard anyone complain that it causes problems. You can always run a hyperthread pentium 4 system with the standard non-smp kernel, just like you can run multiprocessor systems with the non-smp kernel (but youíll just be running one CPU).
If you are concerned, then turn off hyperthreading at the BIOS level, do the installation, turn hyperthreading back on and then install the smp kernel. I think the smp kernel would automatically be installed during a yum/apt update/upgrade if you followed that path, or at least thatís what happens when you move drives between non-smp and smp systems.
