That's not true. I have a 2.6 GHz Northwood, and it supports
HyperThreading (however I'm not running FreeBSD on it, so I can't help
you with SMP).
You can use the Intel Processor Spec Finder
(http://processorfinder.intel.com/) to discover the capabilities of your
CPU, but I think the "HTT" that appears in the dmesg output stands for
Hyper Threading Technology.
