I was curious if windows 2000 was able to detect and
use mulpitle processors? Like having 1 dual cpu
motherboard or interfacing 2 dual cpu motherboards.
I believe the standard Windows 2000 comes with a 1-2 CPU license. This means you can use it on
single processor machines and dual processor machines (a.k.a. SMP machines).
I don't think you can interface 2 dual cpu motherboards directly. You would have to do so
through a fast network connection. This is what clusters do, though they consist of lots and
lots of computers connected via a fast network.
