SCO OpenServer 5.0.7 not seeing second CPU - SCO

I installed 5.0.7 on a Dell Poweredge 2600 with dual Xeon processors. I installed the SMP license but the system only sees one cpu. Is there something else that I need to do to have the OS see both CPUs?...

    Default SCO OpenServer 5.0.7 not seeing second CPU

    I installed 5.0.7 on a Dell Poweredge 2600 with dual Xeon processors.
    I installed the SMP license but the system only sees one cpu. Is there
    something else that I need to do to have the OS see both CPUs?

    There are several additional steps you should take. The required step
    that you have missed is to install the SMP software. Installing the
    software and installing the license are separate actions. (If you had
    installed the software, it would have prompted you for a license, so
    they are not entirely separate actions, but you've done them in reverse
    order.) Go into `custom` (`scoadmin software manager`), point it at
    your install CD, and install from it the "SCO Symmetrical
    Multiprocessing" package.

    After that, you may wish to take advantage of the additional "logical
    processors" provided by the Intel Xeon's HyperThreading technology.
    Support for HT was just added recently. To bring in that support you
    must install the OpenServer 5.0.7 Maintenance Pack 1 and Update Pack 1
    supplements. MP1 is free to all OSR507 customers; UP1 is available only
    if you have a SCO Update service license. The two supplements are at
    ftp://ftp.sco.com/pub/openserver5, subdirectories osr507mp and osr507up.
