If I built a computer with linux and not winXP could I still set up the SMP client?

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.
