SQL Express on dual processor server?

I am preparing a proposal for a new client. The client has bought a
dual-processor server, but is keen to save money. They run a very
small business, and I believe that the 4 Gb limit on SQL Express will
not prove to be an issue. However, can I install SQL Express on a
dual-processor server? I know it won't run on more than 1 CPU, but
can it be installed on a machine with >1 CPU? Also, it won't use 1
Gb memory, but will it install on a machine with 1 Gb memory?

Thanks

YEs, it will install. As you suspect, it is just limited to 1cpu/1GB memory.
