Default Windows Xp home and dual core cpus.

Well i was reading the differences of xp pro and home and i came across this

Quote:
Scalable processor support up to two-way multi-processor support.


pro includes that but home doest not...what does that mean? i am not sure if that is talking about dual cores or not, but windows xp home should have no problem with dual cores would it?
