Hmmm, that's what I get for not paying attention to the hardware front!
So I'm guessing my choices here are
  1) turn off hyperthreading in the BIOS or
  2) install the smp version of the kernel.

I don't see more than one processor in the dmesg output, but I haven't 
rebooted yet to see how it's currently set in the BIOS.  Assuming I
have a choice here, does anybody who has been down this road before
have any preferences?
