    I have a server with dual processors. I am wanting to put Windows Server 2003 on it. Will windows automagically detect the 2 processors or will I have to install other software or tweak the install to recognize the processors??

    I havent installed 2003 on a dual processor machine (yet), but even as far back as NT4, windows was picking up that it was a dual machine during install so I very much doubt that you'll have any problems.

    As I remember the only diffuculty was if you wanted to upgrade from a single to dual processor on an existing windows install: You had to d/l some OS patches first. But I dont know why I've even mentioned that :-S
