Then you  need to go into Processor type and features then select the 
symmetric multi-processor support. When it comes to the compile line use 
something like "fakeroot make-kpkg --append-to-version=-smp kernel_image" 
without the quotes of course so that you will have the kernel named with -smp 
in it.
