Core 2 Duo and XP Home

Does anyone know whether XP Home will take full advantage of both cores with a Core 2 Duo processor? Just ordered a E8400 (Wolfdale) chip and hoping XP Home will be able to read both cores and do the business well?

Windows 2000 and XP are both capable of hyperthreading. See:

for some information.

If you have any IRQ conflicts with devices, you may need to Disable PnP OS in the Bios.

I have it disabled in any case, even with a single CPU.
