Unless something has changed in 5.3 that I am unaware of, the answer is
no. That is, unless you play some particularly nasty tricks on IDL and
write your own multiprocessing routines.  Go to deja.com and search for
posts in this group with my name on them from the last two or three years
and you'll find some examples.  Of course, you'd need to rewrite your SAR
analysis package....  The other option is to run two copies of IDL.
