Adding support for Multi-processor in Win2K is fairly simple. Follow this article from MS: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;234558

G'luck
Enjoy!

Re: 1 --> 2 CPU UPGRADE

I was told there must be a sollution to perform this upgrade with use of the Compaq tools delevered with the machine.

I think the new 'HAL' must be somewhere on the compaq sofware discs???

I don't know how to apply a new HAL with the compaq sofware...

If you are running NT4, then yes, you will need the HAL from Compaq (Use the SSD and uptomp). If you are running Win2K, follow the above.
Enjoy!
