Is there anything special I need to do to make FreeBSD6.2 make
use of both CPU's on a Dell 2650 mother board?

        The boot messages indicate that the OS knows about the 2
CPU's.  Is this correct?

        I heard some rumors that one has to give some sort of
kernel directive but I haven't found anything yet.  This system
will be a secondary DHCP server.  Many thanks

If FreeBSD 6.2 was installed after the dual-core CPU was there, it would have automatically installed the SMP kernel, so you don't need to create a custom kernel.

The easiest way you can check if the support is there by looking at the output of `top`: if there's a column named "C" and it shows "0" and "1", everything's ok ("0" and "1" are the CPUs on which a process is executing).
