Yeah. Linux SMP is faster than Window's SMP IMO.

This is similar to what you are asking and can guide you through. This is VMWare + Linux SMP. http://www.overclock.net/overclock-n...ng-vmware.html

VMWare allows you to have a Virtual OS running above another during desktop, but installing Linux and setting up to fold should be the same.

Knitelife did a bunch of testing and found that there wasn't a significant difference in folding speed among Linux distros. Native Linux SMP is the current king of the hill for folding production, so by all means give it a shot.
