   I run some larger calculations on Linux with Mathematica and 
8 cores essentially using NDSolve, and these calculations definitly use
usually 4 cores without any interference from my side. Mathematica
seems to detect the multicore environment automatically and the
software acts then accordingly. In a sense I was (positively) surprised.

   However, not everything in Mathematica supports multicore, and it is
my guess and partly my experience that it is mostly (maybe only) 
numerical stuff which uses multicores.
