Multiprocessor Question


I have a multiprocessor machine and was wondering is it possible to dedicate one processor to an individual process and let the other processor hanle all other running programs.

For example:

Processor 1 handles program A
Processor 2 handles programs B,C,D,E

I'm presuming it needs to be done at the Kernel level but just wondering if its possible and if anyone would have a few pointers.

MAny thanks
