The best approach to learn more about FreeBSD in my opinion is to
install PCBSD 1.3.01 which is based on FreeBSD 6.1 or DesktopBSD
1.6-RC1 which is FreeBSD 6.2 , they will detect your cpus and will
install the right kernel to use both cpus beside complete ready
FreeBSD with KDE desktop in your thinkpad notebook.
