SMP, SB Live and Samba

i'm a newbie to linux (well i actually tried mandrake and lycoris a bit before) and decided to jump into the deep end and go install slackware. When i installed mandrake and lycoris, i didn't have any problems, but i've just installed slackware and i have a few problems :

1. i've installed slack on a machine with dual processors, but when i click "processor" in the information tab in the control center, it only shows 1 cpu. How do i get slack to recognise the second cpu?

2. i've got an SB live in this computer too, but slack doesn't recognise it, so i've got no sound. Could someone please explain to me (or link me to an explaination) how to get sound?

3. i've got 2 other windows machines on my network and i would like to be able to see and use the shares on those computers (and vice versa). Again, could someone please help me here?

Thanks in advance

Typing modprobe emu10k1 (as root, naturally) will give you immediate SBLive! support. To make the driver load at startup open the file /etc/rc.d/rc.modules and uncomment the /sbin/modprobe emu10k1 line.

The latest version of the emu10k1 driver can be found at Sourceforge.

As for Samba, it's reasonably easy to configure and install, just remember to add the lines --prefix=/usr/local (or just /usr if you prefer) and --with-smbmount to the configure script. The Samba section of the Beyond Linux from Scratch book explains it in more detail.

You need to add support for SMP in the kernel.
Do something like this:
"cd /usr/src/linux"
"make menuconfig"
Select "Processor type and features".
Enable "Symmetic multi-processing support"
Then follow the procedure to compile and install the kernel, google will help you with this.
