Has anyone had any success getting WinXP 32bit to use 4 CPU's under
Centos 5.5 KVM?
I have tried everything and the best I can get is 2 CPU's.  I tried
everything listed here
http://www.linux-kvm.com/content/running-windows-smp-guests  I am using
the VIRTIO drivers.    
Is this known limitation of KVM-83-164 (Centos5 release) with WinXP
32bit?  I think there are reports of it working with 32bit Windows 2003
(or was it Windows 2008?).
I know KVM is granting the 4 CPU's since Linux VM can use 4 CPU's on the
same computer.
