Slackware installed on dual processor machine but only seeing 1...

I've installed Slackware Linux (with 2.2.19 kernel). When I look at a stats page for my server it is telling me that I have only one processor installed. I infact have 2. Is a dual processor setup not automatically detected on installation and if not how do I make it recognise both processors?

Thanks in advance,

Ok, I have learnt that I need to have SMP support in my Kernel. I have never compiled my own Kernel, I just used a pre-compiled one that had support for my ata drive controller. How straightforward is it to recompile my kernel leaving all modules currently loaded but just including the additional smp part?
