For your information, any P4 over 2.8GHz comes with HT-Technology, thus my P4 3.2 uses HT as well, which lead to my initial question, which you are yet to answer to your knowledge oh great one.
Hey, if you're so clever solve your own problem.
But seeing as I'm so lovely (), it is possible that you could benefit from an SMP kernel. CPU performance should increase, but it's possible IO performance will decrease. Multitasking should be improved, though it's debatable whether that's really to do with SMP or just the HT technology.
There is an option in the kernel config to enable HT support or not, I couldn't tell you whether those SMP kernels have that support or not, maybe you might be better to bite the bullet and compile your own kernel. It's not really all that difficult
