Debian not recognizing 1 of my 2 CPUs and sees only 16k cache =(


I've recently installed Debian 3.1 (2.4.27 kernel) on a Dell PowerEdge 2800 server w/dual Xeon 3.6GHz Processors and 2MB L2 cache per processor core, however when I do "cat /proc/cpuinfo", it gives shows that I only have 1 processor and 16k cache:

<snippets of /proc/cpuinfo>
processor	: 0
vendor_id	: GenuineIntel
model name	: Intel(R) Xeon(TM) CPU 3.60GHz
cpu MHz	: 3589.54
cache size	: 16k

There is no "processor	: 1" output following this implying that it didn't recognize a 2nd cpu.

Concerning the 16k cache problem, I've read about it in a another post (which unfortunately, I can't seem to find again).  If anybody has had similar problems and can provide me with some assistance, I would greatly appreciate it

P.S. - I read various solutions to this problem but with different kernels/distros by which they enabled acpi support, and others turning it off.  However, I don't see the significance of doing that since acpi is a power management interface and a server such as this has all the power it needs from the outlets...
