[ubuntu-za] KVM cores

Hi Guys

I have an Intel Xeon (Quad core) machine running Ubuntu server (9.10)
with KVM.  There are two virtual machines running on it.  I've installed
a basic Gnome desktop and is using virt-manager to manage the machines.

One of the virtual machines is a Win 2008 server.  Virt-manager
indicates that the virtual machine is running on only 1 cpu core.  When
I stop the machine and change the machines properties (in Virt-Manager)
to 4 cpu cores it seems to accept it.  But as soon as the machine starts
up it runs on only 1 cpu core again.

Anybody knows of an alternative means to change it?
