I have read that SBS2003 supports 2 physical processors - so even if I have 2 dual-core CPUs it's still 2 processors, but I can't find any info on SBS2000.  I have a client that would like to keep SBS2000 but drop in a new board and a couple dual core Athlon X2's or Dual Core Xeons - I'm guessing SBS2000 would detect 4 CPUs since it thinks each core is a CPU - is this correct?  Can I use all 4 cores with SBS2000?

I ran many Windows 2000 Servers on dual hyperthreaded Xeon computers showing 4 processors in the OS. No problems at all. You may want to consult the following list when choosing your motherboard.

or check directly with the manufacturer for compatibility.
