Oh, yey. I guess I can join this.

One question, will the Ubuntu method work within Fedora? I use Fedora as my media streaming system and it would be nice to remain in Fedora so I could access my media files, as opposed to booting Windows where I do not have access to media. Regardless, Chimpin' comes first!
I prefer this guide
for setting up v7, that should work if you substitute the client link with this: https://fah-web.stanford.edu/file-releases/beta/release/fahclient/centos-5.3-64bit/v7.3/fahclient_7.3.6-64bit-release.tar.bz2
(I have not actually tried this though)
Alternatively, there is a guide on Stanford's site for RedHat / CentOS / Fedora: http://folding.stanford.edu/English/LinGuide#ntoc9
To get the latest version use these files:
FAHclient (what actually gets the job done): https://fah-web.stanford.edu/file-releases/beta/release/fahclient/centos-5.3-64bit/v7.3/fahclient-7.3.6-1.x86_64.rpm
FAHcontrol (GUI control): https://fah-web.stanford.edu/file-releases/beta/release/fahcontrol/centos-5.3-64bit/v7.3/fahcontrol-7.3.6-1.noarch.rpm
If you have another computer with FAHControl installed on it, you only need to install the FAHclient and can remote control from the other rig.

You will need a passkey for each client you run to obtain the bonus points AFAIK. It can be the same key.
Correct, you can use the same key on several machines and a key is required to get QRB (bonus) points.Edited by arvidab - 4/5/13 at 12:36pm
