Looks as if only one processor is activated. Usually you should find this:

Processors: 2

For each processor some entries saying something about it's speed, etc.

Perhaps you could check these things:

- Has the second processor ever worked? Is it activated, etc.
- Did you try a precompiled debian kernel package with SMP Support?
- Is there a way to enable the newer "Intel MultiProcesssor Spec 1.4"
- perhaps are there some kernel boot flags to force things

just my two cents (I'm using a AMD Athlon MP box and I did never have any problems to bring both processors to live)
