Windows XP Multi Core config - Does your OEM do it for you?

It seems some OEMs are not configuring dual core processor systems correctly and the owners of affected systems are losing out on performance as a result.

The link is to a forum post at notebookreview.com in which directions are given for enabling and tuning AMD dual core processors. Included are directions for seeing how to check that the cores are indeed enabled and downloads specific to AMD processors. I have yet to find directions for Intel processors and suspect this is more an AMD problem than an Intel one, though I do not know for sure.
