Quoting Go3Team (Reply 1): If they can support multiple processors, I don't see why they can't support a dual core.
Dont forget there is such a thing as core 2 Duo with quad CPUs.
The main problem isn't REALLY if the OS supports the CPU so much as the compilation of the programs you want to run. If the programs you want to run weren't optimized to take advantage of multiprocessing you'll be stuck with whatever thread re-assgnments the OS can mannage if at all.

I do know that the kernel that distributes with Fedora Core 6 is fully compatible with dual core processors, and recognizes it as such. The only thing is that the FC installation software (Anaconda) recognizes it as an i386 processor, and so you would need to override it to install the i686 kernel and support.
