Fold on dual core.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have looked at the guides on F@H and I have no earthly idea how to fold on two cores. First, what is a directory, and how do i make one. Second how do i specify something as "-local". Lastly, what else do i have to do?

Here is what F@H said-
Does Folding@home run on dual processor machines? Yes, you can. Additional processors must run the console version (with the "-local" command-line argument if run on Windows). First, make additional directories for each processor and copy the FAH Console executable file into each. Then configure them with the -config switch, filling in settings for each. It is very important to make sure that under the "Advanced Settings" option each copy is given a unique machine ID (from 1 to 8). The first copy will default to a machine ID of 1, so additional copies should be given IDs of 2, 3, 4, etc. Each may then be run out of their installed directory, using the -local switch on windows.
