"Home" supports a single multicore CPU but not multiple sockets.  
"Professional/Business" editions support dual sockets (typically only 
found on high end workstations and of course servers).     Its a totally 
arbitrary marketing distinction...  Orignially, there was only going to 
be one version of XP at the higher price point (where NT and Win2000 
Workstation already had been), but the market, primarily OEM, complained 
it was too expensive as an alternative to the cheaper win9X/ME system, 
so at the last minute they 'lobotomized' XP into a cheaper "Home" 
edition, primarily by disabling the file security dialogs, domain/Active 
Directory membership support, restricting to 1 socket instead of 2, and 
removing Remote Desktop Server.
