Hi,

In addition to my quest to upgrade this 6.0-RELEASE to 6.2-RELEASE-p4,
I have a question about the kernel and SMP.  This system has two
processors and I want to make sure I'm going to build an SMP capable
kernel, especially, considering I'm going from 6.0 to 6.2.  I managed
to find a past posting to this list saying that from 6.2 on, SMP is
detected and used by default; will this happen for me?  Should I edit
/usr/src/sys/<arch>/conf/MYKERNEL with something like "options SMP" or
whatever it is?  (I'm only guessing here, and I want to make sure I
get an SMP kernel.)

Thanks,
Andy
