dual processors?

About a year ago I read a microsoft publication that lead me to believe that Windows 2000 professional would only support one cpu. Other stuff I've seen since has suggested it would support 2 cpu's.
I've seen and RC2 that only supports one processor. How many CPU's does the final release support?
