[gmx-users] Dual core on Linux

Dear gmx-users:
 I have two somewhat stupid questions regarding the dual-core processor on
Linux, could some one shed some light on it?
 Question 1: Does the dual core means we effectively have two CPU on one
machine? i.e., If run two separate jobs on a dual core machine, does it
equivalent to running these two jobs on two separate machines? (assume the
memory cost, and disk writing is not an issue).
 Question 2: Does the old RedHat 9.0 support the dual core technique? It
appears to me that dual core machine is fairly new thing. If RH9.0 is not
good, what Linux distribution should a gromacs user go for?
 Thank you very much for your input.
