options SMP

done.  i'm fairly confident you can boot such a kernel on a single  
CPU too.

also, make sure you don't have hyperthreading on these processors  
on.  it seems to just degrade performance.  if you build a SMP  
kernel, it will try to use hyperthreading unless you tell it not to  
and/or it is disabled in bios.
