You may be able to get a copy of the OS, but that is software. It will
use any CPUs found.
You can get a license to use that OS for free, under certain conditions
(such as the machine being a single processor).
The OS will use all CPUS. Whether you have a valid license to use that
OS on a particular machine is a separate question.
No. I don't know of any "upgrade license". You purchase a RTU (right> question is when I buy the upgarde license to use both CPU do they

to use) license. Such a license would come with any new hardware from
Sun. See the Sun web page or your Sun rep for other information.
The OS and hardware have no interaction with these licenses.> or does the other processor turn on by default and
