i am pretty sure that by default, the answer is no....
i think you have to recompile the kernel with smp support....
i don't have dualies personally, but to my knowledge i think that is the case, and i am sure someone will correct me if i am wrong..
and in any case gkrellm + lm_sensors is always a great tool for viewing many different things.

If you try using top and press the 1 key it will cycle through your cpu's. If you have smp support compiled in I guess.

I know its not graphical but its a quick test that shouldnt be hard to do.

And as the previous post said, gkrellm is great!

no gtop but,

if you chose to load kde in your RH9 setup you might (I do) have a
System Tools|More System Tools|KDE System Guard
which shows a CPU load graph that updates continuously.
