        Yeah, it seems XP can tall the difference between a hyperthreaded
logical processor
        and a real physical one, but 2000 can't. But, if you have more than
1 proc with
        hyperthreading turned on in uses the 1st logical processor in each
physical processor
        before it starts using the 2nd logical. I was also told by Compaq
that it depends
        on whether or not the app is hyperthread aware.

Hmm found this document on Hyperthreading support from MS
http://www.microsoft.com/whdc/hwdev/platform/proc/HT-Windows.mspx

In it states:
        All versions of the Windows 2000 operating system are fully
compliant with HT and should run without error on HT-enabled systems.
However, neither Windows 2000 nor any of its service packs support the
identification of HT processors. The type of modifications that are required
for HT processor identification and support are not typically supported in a
service pack. There are no plans to introduce this support in any future
Windows 2000 service pack.
        As a result, Windows 2000 treats each logical processor as if it
were an individual physical processor. The operating system attempts to
start each logical processor in the sequence in which it was listed by the
BIOS until the number of processors that have been started is equal to the
processor license limit for that version of the operating system. Table 1
shows the processor limits for Windows 2000 versions.

Yeah its all version of Win2k though, anyway.....=20

Anyway on Pro, Srvr, and Adv srvr with logical processors enabled they will
show up and work in the servers. The problem is that they are finding
problems under load with these OSs.

That only refers to workstations though Ron it doesn't say anything about
servers. Not doubting you just pointing it out. : )
