[svlug] Hype or threading?

Howdie compatriats!

we got a dual Xeon machine with Hyperthreading. from the little info I
could find here and there it seems that only 2.5 kernel schedulers
support it, whereas our software must run on a vendor-certified SuSE
2.4.18 kernel. what are my options, other than trying to fiddle with the
BIOS or something into disabling the secondary core on each chip so
linux sees only two CPUs rather than 4?

any good solutions for this?
