This tip is valid for: Both BeOS and Haiku

I have a Compaq Proliant 800 system /w dual PPro 200’s, and couldn’t get both CPUs to be detected in BeOS (Pulse showed only one CPU). The solution is to enter the BIOS and select Configure hardware | Edit Details and change the operating system from “Other” (or whatever else you have in there) to UNIX. Then, on that submenu, choose Linux. Once back in BeOS, both CPUs will be detected and used.
