    No. Home will support two virtual processors, but not two physical
    processors. You need Pro for that.

    No.

    XP Home is limited to one physical processor. (It supports hyperthreaded
    CPUs, which show up as two logical CPUs in Device Manager.)

    XP Pro supports two physical processors (which would appear as 4 CPUs in a
    HT system).

    Windows Server 2003 supports up to 64 CPUs.

    HTH.

    Address altered. Replace nkbob with bobkn
