submit job 2 processors

Hello people,

I am working on a machine that runs under red hat 9.0. Physically it has two (2) processors but the software reports four (4). All I want to do is to send my jobs to a specific CPU. For example, I want to tell it:

<my_command_2> in cpu1
Thanks for any help!.
