Adding second CPU to Proliant DL380 G2


I am about to add a second CPU to a Proliant DL380 G2 server currently configured as an ACPI Uniprocessor running Windows 2000. According to Microsoft documentation, I need to update the HAL to multiprocessor (and they provide the instructions to do this). They also mention that I should contact the hardware vendor to see if there is a vendor specific HAL to use instead. Does anyone here know of a HP/Compaq vendor specific HAL that should be used on this server?
