2 CPUs

I have a fresh installation of Fedora Core 1.0. How can I find out if the installation detected two CPUs?

Also, when you boot up there should be something about smp (symetric mulit-processing) in the kernel name. If not you need ot boot with a kernel w/ smp built in to take advantage of both processors. When I installed FC1, it outdetected dual processors for me just fine.
