    if the right kernel is installed it will use both.

    uname -r

    should say smp at the end.

    in top tap "1"

    You can tell top to use your configuration file. Do the following:
    1. Enter top
    2. Once in top, press 1 to show all CPUs
    3. Enter shift+w (command of W) to write the current configuration.
    Now whenever you run top as that user on that server, it will show both CPUs.
