How can I check the number of cpus
on a RH 5.2 system? There should
be installed two PIII 450

processor: 0
cpu: 686
model <NULL>
vendor_id: GenuineIntel
stepping: 2
fdiv_bug: no
hlt_bug: no
f00f_bug: no
fpu: yes

Well, that's how you'd determine the number of CPU's, but it only shows you what the kernel is using. And unless you are running an SMP kernel, you are only going to use one regardless of how many are actually there (does 5.2 have usable SMP support?).

It is telling you it's only using one processor. 0 is the first and 1 is the second. I'm running duel pentium pros at work. You must recompile your kernel for multiple processors. I'm not sure about 5.2, but newer RH's have a point and click.
cd /usr/src/linux
make xconfig
if that doesn't work  make menuconfig
save at end
type this at prompt
make dep; make clean; make bzImage
Your new image is in /usr/src/linux/arch/i386/boot

This must be put in /boot
You must also edit /etc/lilo.conf
Then type lilo to make it work.
To put your kernel in /boot and make it bootable go to http://linuxdoc.org/ and look for the HOWTO or some other info. You must be careful or your system won't boot.
