I'm running it on a dual PPro 200 now with both processors. I just
launched it twice (by hand).

Both runs say "Processor 1", which may or may not be misleading (maybe
it was processor 1 when it said that). But I'm getting the same number
of keys per second in each process as I do when I only run one, which
means total throughput is twice what I get when I run just one. So I
guess NT is doing the right thing.
