Yes you will... but Windows home will only reconize one core, you will have to upgrade to XP Pro to use both of them. (Windows Server 2K3 can see up to 8!
Unless someone knows of a third party solution.

Is that... smoke?

Windows home will recognise and use both cores in a dual core cpu, it will not run both CPU's on a dual socket computer.

So you should be ok in that respect, and you should not have to re-install windows either.
