Mathematica and Multiprocessor Computers

I am wondering if anyone has any knowlege about whether Mathematica
(particularly version 3) has any inherent capability to take advantage
of
multiple processors on machines which have them -- other than the
obvious
case of running two completely separate Mathematica sessions on the
two CPU's. I will be receiving a pentium-pro machine which is dual-
processor capable and it would be nice to know if a second processor
would provide any speed improvement. If there is no inherent
capability,
perhaps there is a way to link two kernels together to provide some
parallelism?? Appologies if this question has
already been asked; our news server only keeps articles for seven days.

Thanks in advance for any info.
