Biprocessor on Compaq Proliant ML370 G2 with Windows NT4.0 SP6

Can you tell me if it is possible to install 2 processors on Compaq Proliant ML370 G2 with Windows NT4.0 SP6.
If OK, do you know if Win NT will be able to allocate processes to the first processor or the second and finally being more performant
(NB : the processes are not multithread)

You can add second processor, but you must change HAL from uni- to multiprocessor.
Windows NT do not have application or internal process to load processes to indicated processor(s)

Once you physically add the second processor into the server you should be able to use this utility to change the HAL:
