Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I don't have physical access to the box, but I need to find out how many CPU's it has. Both top and /proc/cpuinfo show 4 CPU's, which I know isn't the case.
I google'd around and read something about hyperthreading being enabled, and this causing 4 CPU's being shown. Since I don't have physical access to the box, I can't disable hyperthreading in the BIOS.
Is there any other way to find out for sure how many CPU's are in the box?
Do you have 2 hyperthreading CPUs then? Each hyperthreading CPU will show up as two CPUs. Newer Xeons and P4s have hyperthreading characteristics, but if you have 2 they must be Xeons since AFAIK P4s can't dpo SMP configurations.

Regular P4's do smp.
The OP must have dual Hyper threaded cpu's as already stated above.
Im useing dual xeon with hyper threading and it shows as 4 cpu's as it should.
