but Control Panel | System | General | Computer says, "Intel Pentium II processor." I know there is an issue that Windoqws 2003 has trouble seeing a dual PII processor machine. Is this also true with Windows XP Professional? Is there a fix for this?

Click start/run and type in devmgmt.msc
Go to the Processors section and expand it.
How may proccessors are listed?

I was not aware of Windows2003 seeing a dual Pentium. I am on dual Pentium on Win 2003. What you may be talking about is the Prescott Processor. That has a bit of a problem with installation of XP SP2

I tried that. That is Device Manager. There is no Processors section. There is a Computer section and under that it says MPS Multiprocessor Machine. But that is not convincing that the system sees both Processors. Where I went originally would have convinced me. And it leaves me wondering.
