Looks like you have very great machine!
You must add line "append mem=1000M" to your /etc/lilo.conf file. check
the exact syntax as I never had more than 128MB ram in my machine.
You can check for the cpus in /proc file system. Or you can use "dmesg"
to display messages from boot. There you should see something about two
cpus as well.

Good luck.
