What does "uname -a" say? Did you compile your kernel with SMP? The "2 
logical CPUs" message is referring to the hyperthreading feature of the 
Xeon processor, where it emulates two CPUs in one physical processor.

If you haven't, cvsup using RELENG_5_3 to get the security updates for 
5.3, and then compile with the option "KERNCONF=SMP".


Hope this helps.
