How to know whether NAPI is used or not?

Is there any means by which I can find whether NAPI is being used by my current installation by default. I am using RedHat linux 9.0 (2.4.20-8 smp kernel). eth0 specification says that NAPI is disabled by default. But after installing RedHat 9.0, all softirqs are going to CPU0 only (NAPI's behaviour with single NIC). Previously they used to go to all 4 processors uniformly. By the way, I have only one NIC (Intel 1000 PRO) that uses e1000 driver. Please help me out.

Thanks in adv,
Satya Srikanth
