I want to fold, what now?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I've been a member for quite some time now but I want to start folding. I figure it's time to put my machine to some good use. I have vmware and Ubuntu installed but I know nothing about using it as I'm completely a Windows guy. Can someone get me started with what I need to know about starting to fold on Ubuntu?

Sorry, but I would like some info about it too. Don`t want to start a new thread. English isn`t my native, I was seeing "Folding this, fold that, fold mashine, Folding@Home" so I started to wonder "What the hell are these guys talking about!?"
So just week ago I figured out what it is about protein and diseases. I know much about biology and would like to help, especially when I buy new comp, these OCed machines need to be put to good use, not just showoff...
Have a few questions, even if I read the posts on the forum.
Would appreciate very much if there is someone who would like to answer...

After that, we can help you with more specific questions.

@PuffinMyLye: are you using the OCN version of Ubuntu Server with only f@h on it?

No I just have regular Ubuntu 6 or 7 I think it is, not server. I'd love some more info on that if that is what's recommended.

Welcome to folding! It's a good use of machinery that would otherwise just be sitting there.
