What OS do you use for your farms? - Page 2

post #11 of 14
my farm image...(would u believe i have an 'image')....is.....

safe xp (to disable anything unnecessary)
vnc (easy remote access internally)
symmantec anti virus, etc (doubt they will get a virus but you never know)
and of course fah..


all on win xp, speaking of farms I do have to mention i have just built mind, if you check phirex now on our team i have 5 active cpu's within 7 days, 3 p4's and 2 amd 's (1100 & 1000) going 24/7, pumping out about 2k points a week so I should soar up shortly!!!!! watch this space.....i picked up the last 1100 for about $60 and threw it in an old case & chucked an old hdd and some ram lying around in it and bobs ure uncle, now it's doing a tinker about every 3 days.... and ive resigned from my job, but it will be folding forever hopefully, and it's a nice 3ghz with a1gb ram, it's hyperthread so only ever uses 50% of the cpu, which is fine for the apps it runs.....1gb ram helps..

hope to go even more, I want 10!

i would replace symantec antivirus with some other program, if not just completely get rid of it. if your pcs are behind a firewall and all theyre doing is folding you dont really need to have any antivirus, but if you just want to be on the safe side you should check out Avast! instead of symantec. Avast! is free so you wouldnt have to pay an extra $20 or whatever just for software on each pc

Win98 Lite or 98Micro. www.litepc.com

You can install everything in under 50Mb.

Quote:
98micro is an installation option in 98lite PROFESSIONAL that uses the Windows 95 Explorer to perform an ultra-clean installation of Windows98 without any part of the MS HTML (Internet Explorer) engine. You get a lean, mean operating system in under 70 Mb that is ideal for many applications. You can push the envelope further and get Windows98 under 50 Mb! (see below)

98micro completely removes all traces of the MS HTML engine (shdocvw.dll, and mshtml.dll). You will not have access to any of the proprietary Microsoft compressed help files, and you will not be able to run programs that rely on the MS HTML rendering engine, but many other stand-alone applications will perform better than ever. For example, you can not run Outlook Express, FrontPage, and MS Money. But a system with Netscape, Opera, Pegasus Mail, Gravity, Agent will just fine! Even Microsoft Office97 will install and run beautifully under 98micro! So who's going to be the first to run a self contained windows application from a zip disk?!
