None of the FSL tools are multi-threaded at present, but, the scripts
are capable of multi-processing. The easiest way to use this is to
install a batch environment like SGE on your machine, there are several
resources on our wiki pages to help with SGE. The bedpostx script will
then split the job into subtasks to use all your CPUs at once.
