    Dual processor machines have two sockets for the processor, I doubt your MB is so equipped. Also, you need identical processors for most dual processor systems, and it's even suggested they come from the same stepping in the manufacturing process. Timing is critical between the processors if you want it to work properly.

    If your interested in dual processing for personal home use, you could check out Intel's website and get info on the Pent. 4- 3.06gig. processor, which supports hyperthreading. This allows the one processor to act like two. Intel

    You will also need an operating system that works with dual processors such as Linux or Win 2k.
