Win2KPro (Workstation) supports 1-2 CPUs, so yes.

I have several systems available - I offered the MB/CPUs here a few months
ago and got no response. The MBs are installed in rackmount cases of fairly
good condition, and have on-board SCSI. I'd honestly prefer to send you a
known-good MB/CPUs installed in a case with a power supply for the cost of
shipping, if you are interested. THat way you can remove it yourself and be
assured it will work (shipping loose MB and CPUs might break them in
transit). I don't remember the model number, but is should be in the maillist

Contact me off-list if interested.
