What exactly would you like to know?
If your host has more than one physical CPU, you could take use 2 virtual CPU's in VMware Player 2.0. If the virtual machine was configured for two virtual CPU's and the guest OS is SMP.
You should really use this option if you really have a particular need for this, because it's too easy to over commit your host CPU resources with this type of configuration
You can assign two processors to the virtual machine only if the host machine has at least two logical processors.
But please note that it is only recommended to do this only if you have more than two physical[/i] processors (or cores). Otherwise, the host is not left with enough resources to do its own jobs, and your guest performance will suffer greatly.
So if the VM was on a dual-core machine would you suggest using one CPU for the host and the other for the guest?
I'm trying to get as much power (and stability) to the VM as possible.
