Theoretically yes (it has SMP kernel) but practically I've seen
problems like you had to install SMP kernel and module packages
manually.  *sigh* since it's obviously a bug.

Regarding colours, you can try to modify the aforementioned
setting and restart X (sorry for being so config-oriented, I'm
just too dumb regarding the rest of the tools that's available
and when I know the config, it's more reliable to work out an
"edit this"-like advice rather than figuring out what's working
and what's broken).
