freebsd 4.7, 5.0, SMP and hyper-threading

I'm reading up on SMP and I'm wondering about this:

I run an app that is threaded but is not specifically designed to take
advantage of SMP. Based on my readings about FreeBSD and SMP I think this
app can still take advantage of SMP because 2 threads can each access one of
the two CPU's at a given time.

Is this correct?

Also one on machine i'm running FreeBSD 4.7 with 2  XEON 2.0 processors. Is
hyper-threading enabled in this situation?


(btw the app is Zope)
