Re: can Mathematica use dual processors?

I run Mathematica 4.0 under WindowsNT 4 with 2 processors. The bad news is that
the kernel uses only "one" processor. (By default, NT chooses which and
the choice changes quite often. Using the task manager, one force NT to
stick to one or the other.) The good news is that you can launch another
kernel to use the "other" processor and get work done while your long
program runs.
