New Year Greetings to Everyone here!

I have a IBM AIX box with a DUAL Processor. I want to install Oracle
9.2 on it and was wondering if there is any way to install it such that
it uses ONLY ONE PROCESSOR rather then using BOTH PROCESSORS (without
disabling the other processor).

We DO NOT want to DISABLE the other processor becos other programs are
using the Server for different (non-Oracle) purposes. We cannot afford
2 License Of Oracle on this box.

So I was wondering if we can install Oracle and make it use only ONE
PROCESSOR.... I know it sounds silly... but becos of crunch budget we
are trying to work on cost-cutting.....

THANKS!
