[nSLUG] Hyperthreading

I believe that the chip set of the motherboard also has to support 
hyperthreading.  You may have a HT CPU and OS but not support on motherboard.

But could be wrong as have only seen a few m/b with notes saying support 
hyperthreading.

My feeling is that if no reference on m/b docs that it does support 
hyperthreading, then it likely does not.

I recently purchased some Intel brand motherboards and they explicitly said HT 
support on the m/b and bios.

Am I surmising incorrecly here??
