I managed to get a hold of an old server from a friend which is a L440GX+ w/ 2 Pent III 500's, 1GB RAM, 9GB HD.

During boot it looks like FreeBSD has only reconized 1 CPU.

Am I correct in assuming that FBSD is seeing only 1 CPU? BIOS sees 2.
Is there anything I have to do to get it to see 2 CPU's? Before I compile a new kernal?

And is there anything I can do about unknown: <PNP0303> can't assign resources (port)?

Have you tried with a custom kernel with SMP support yet? I have yet to see a base install do SMP out of the box, but I don't work with duals enough for you to quote me on it.

Kernel Killer is correct, GENERIC does not have SMP support.

Check out http://docs.freebsd.org/doc/5.4-RELEASE/usr/share/doc/en/books/handbook/kernelconfig.html for the 5.4 version of the handbook, which should have everything you need to get recompiled.

Thanks, I wasn't to sure what the whole process was called.:smile:
