I never thought about folding for that spare rig, but I guess I can look into that later today.
Great. That would be cool. You can run two cores on it!

Well. That's a lie, guys...you can't say it doesn't impede performance at all. It takes up ram, and doesn't empty itself when you start playing games...so keeps using ram.

Other than that though...not relaly a noticeable background app. Causes less trouble than most other background apps even at 100% use.

Whenever I am at a friends house I always download the console version of f@H so even if they think they are not folding, oh yes they are.

Well 1, it kinda died.. it's in the shop (5 year warrenties rule!). Um, i'm on a p3...gl getting it to work without freezing...

However i'm going to start up a e6300 rig (though slow to starting one up, financially i'm slowly able to afford it by jan/february ).

So, any tip's or suggestions, is is just an install? + tell it how much of the processor to use or what?
Try setting the console version to use around 50% CPU. I had simmilar lockup issues on my PIII untill I lowered CPU usage. (It seems like it's hardly worth the effort, but every little point helps!)

Yes sir, it is! Just download the file from the link below and run it from a terminal. (You might have to change the file extension to .SH)
http://www.stanford.edu/group/pandeg...H504-Linux.exe
for example, to get it started after you renamed the file, you would run from a console:

cd /*Whereever you saved the file*
sh FAH504-Linux.sh

yeah its pretty easy to do (i mean i figured it out), actually if you have the 64bit linux you can get some really good returns, jsut download the linux version then what i do is just run it in a console

first i put it in its own folder then in the console i make it a directory (the folder i just put it in) then i open that dir and then once im there i usually just drag and drop or copy and paste the folding program thats in the folder and it fires right up

go thru set all your stuff and yoru good to go

after that if i shut down the console i just go back to cd/folding folder and drag and drop again and it starts from where i left off


i may be doing this totally wrong but it works and im still a super noob at linux

That's a perfectly fine method.
