> I want to convince a Windows (2k3 server) box that it's a single-core
For the purposes of Windows licensing, a dual-core CPU is considered to be a single CPU, regardless of how Windows identifies the CPU. Can I ask therefore why you would need to do this? Is it some strange non-standard license you're dealing with?

After the stunning responses I got about disks for the SMB I'm
driven to ask these dumb questions.
1. For licence reasons, I want to convince a Windows (2k3 server)
box that it's a single-core. This is astonishingly easy, but nearly
pointless, with a Linux kernel. Is it possible with Windows?
2. At work they're looking for a 7-weeker PC deployment person,
not a lot of experience or skill required, but an understanding of
XP, SOEs, maybe Netware, ability to work unsupervised, yada yada.
90% of the time jobsoc is invoked, I wonder why they don't mention
dollars. The other 10% of the time I roll my eyes at their hubris
(after they've specified the dollars). So this gig's worth about $40
an hour. Ideally to someone who wants a short gap fill and has
their own company they can bill through. Ha! (I'll say it for you.)
