Subject: Parallel search development on a single processor machine ?

I plan to buy new hardware soon, and I hesitate about buying a multiprocessor
motherboard. I would like to try parallel search algorithms for The Crazy Bishop
and I wonder if it possible to experiment them with multiple threads on a single
processor. From the little experience of parallel programming I have, I guess
that there are some problems that could arise when two threads are running on
two processors simultaneously that would not arise when they run in different
time slices on the same processor. I would like to know what more experienced
parallel searchers think.
