on a physical server we select 2 processors. we then select SQL 2008 STD 1 socket license. since the server has 2 processors, can we assign SQL to only processor and run? if we can, can the second processor on the server be used by the OS on the server?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You will need to purchase 2 processor licenses as you need to license it based on the number of processors that are located in the server running SQL.
