And would Apache take advantage of it?  My server application will be a little heavy on the hard disk access. Would a Dual Processor help in this application.

Yes, Linux knows how to handle multiple processors and yes apache would uses both
of them, but this wont help you with your harddisk access.
Try to use the md device driver and two or more harddisks as a raid0/5 and add a bunch
of RAM for the buffercache
