Dual core machines essentially are just Dual CPU machines. Just 
configure them to have np=X CPUs in torque.

pbs_mom should do autodetection of available CPUs, but depending on your 
kernel version (distros are know to ship completely patched up, but old 
kernels -- dont use them) this might fail.
Make sure /proc/cpuinfo should lists all of your CPUs.
