How 2 see 2 CPU when P4 HyperThreading enabled?

I am using Fedora Core 1 and P4 2.8 Ghz with Hyper Threading enabled. When I open system monitor, I can only see one CPU running. What do I do in order to see both CPU running? I could see both CPU in Windows XP.

You need to use an SMP (symmetric multi-processing) kernel in order to take advantage of the "dual" processors. An SMP kernel variant is included on the Fedora Core CD's.

Yeah, I did that already. But I still seeing one only. Do I need to reconfigure the kernel?

Maybe not.

Post the output of the file /proc/cpuinfo.
