NT, SMP, and Deschall.... How to use both processors?

Hey all,

We finally got our NT 4.0 server the other day, and we wanted to
put DESCHALL on it to take advantage of the dual Pentium Pro 200MHZ
CPU's in it... NT is SMP, and you can see both CPU lights
working when it is running, but the DESCHALL client only reports
one CPU while it is running. So, I thought... "well steve, maybe NT
'hides' the other CPU so it looks like one FAST cpu..." But after
playing with it, I don't think thats the case...

Unfortunatly, this is our "FIRST" NT box, so I'm learning as
I go on this system... at least 4.0 looks like Win95 and I've
played with that a good deal... I would rather it be WARP
SERVER for OS/2! :(

So, my question boils down to this: How do you get it to use
BOTH processors under NT server? (NT) I have the other Dual
Pentium 150Mhz Machine running Linux, and it works with BOTH
processors, but not the NT box....

(unfortunatly I can't put linux on this box either... :(
