Uhm, no.  The "free" version is the same version you get if you pay for a
license.  The *license* in the "free" version says its for uniprocessor
systems only, but thats just legalese/licensing terms.  They don't make
two different versions of the OS.  Downloaded ISOs from Sun will work just
fine on any number of CPUs.
