  3. There is currently no SP2 for Windows XP x64 Edition. Reportedly, one is in
    beta. In any case, Windows XP Professional, whether 32-bit or 64-bit,
    supports two processor sockets. If they're dual core, it still supports two
    sockets, so thus 4 processors.

    Unless they are dual-core with hyperthreading on, as the Xeon series are,
    then XP thinks there are 8.
