How to add second CPU to DL585

I should install a second CPU on a DL585.
II have installed Suse enterprise Version 2.6.5-7.191-bigsmp #1 SMP Tue Jun 28 14:58:56 UTC 2005 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux.
can I install the CPU without recompiling the Kernel?
What ist the best way to do this?
My knowledge is, the installed Kernel can boot with 2 cpu`s. is this true?

I can`t install a new version, because the Application need that Version.

Hello Huettner,

You are in luck. "*smp" kernel already support Multiple CPU(s) by default.

Install the CPU as per normal Hardware Installation, down the Server.

Hello Huettner,

From the OS Level,

Before CPU(s) addition:
# cat /proc/cpuinfo > cpuinfo_before.txt

After CPU(s) addition:
# cat /proc/cpuinfo > cpuinfo_after.txt

Compare cpuinfo_before.txt & cpuinfo_after.txt.

You should notice the difference :)

Thanks
