Hello - Thanks in advance for help,
I am attempting to install Slackware 7.0 (I have the fatty Unleashed book pertaining to that version) on a Dual Pentium II, 300 MHz with 192 MB of FP ram. Mo Bo is the S1686 Pentium II PCI - ISA. Has old matrox video card, 8GB Bigfoot, 32X Max CD and floppy. My question is this...Is there anything specific I need to do prior to or after installation in order for the OS to take advantage of both processors. I ask because 8 months ago I installed Red Hat on my Dual PIII 800 MHz Box but have the feeling It didn't configure rite as KSim only shows the load of one processor. I am switching to Slackware to learn Console so if there is something special needed to "Compile" or configure that is how I would like to know, in consolinese. Also, I am still a major
with only a little knowledge of red hat (which I am going away from and moving to slackware). I have successfully set up Samba, Swat, Squid, httpd, mysqld, and the php phraser. Beyond that I have limited knowledge of tree structure (still trying to remember how everything is placed), no knowledge in compiling kernel, and little or zero knowledge in everything else. Any help would be greatly appreciated as Ive searched the net and this site and found nothing about Linux Installation on dual processor machines.
