Does FreeBSD autodetect multiple CPU's or do you specifically have to
configure the kernel and recompile?

I tried downloading the latest code using cvsup..commenting out the
following two lines...and tried to follow the make world procedure as
outline in the handbook.  However, when I try to boot with the new
kernel...it doesn't work.

Also, how do you verify whether or not both CPUs have been configured in =
the
kernel...and that they are in fact being used?

Other flavours of UNIX have mpstat or prtdiag...

Thanks,
Marco
