    You can use more than 1 PC yeah, just input the team and your ID onto each one.
    A P4 2.8 should get though a fair few WU's; all of mine are coming from a lowly AMD64 3000+ which happens to be on 24/7 downstairs anyway.
    I wouldn't run it on a laptop though, it generates more heat that standard operation and may damage/break the laptop.

    FAHmon doesnt seem to like that setup... how can I configure it to monitor the progress of each core?

    Also, how can I configure my PC to monitor my friend's PC over the internet?

    Fahmon isn't monitoring all 4 cores which are running from the command line... maybe I should delete everything and start afresh with some new instructions?

    Also, when do we get the next update? Could I also ask how long it takes other to crunch a full unit...

    That depends on the unit and your computer.

    No, Fahmon doesn't detect them or allow me to add the files (it asks for text files?). This is on windows XP pro

    Also, I meant how long does it take others to crunch a WU regardless of how powerful the machine is or what OS you're running...

    I might have to start utilising both cores soon (though not constantly)...just got it using one 24/7 atm

    I could always overwrite the University lab screensavers, but it might lead back to me if they're configured for 'kam' :p:

    There are ways around of course (especially if you're doing a networking course and know how to get into your admins machine).

    It would be a bit silly messing around with anything though...I'll just get a few virtual machines running for a day and see how well they operate (on my friends account) :p:

    EDIT: It's for a good cause. May as well use up the idle CPU time somehow! I'll give you rep (tomorrow) for reviving the team

    Just a glorified XP MCE box (3000+ AMD64, 1Gb) connected a TV downstairs with 8 HDD's RAID5'd up so people can get stuff off it.
    One of my housemates thinks Maxtors are gods gift to computing, so it was offline for 3 days while it rebuilt onto a Western Digital. Its nearly full now too (only 1Tb) so its moving into the outhouse in the summer and having 2-3Tb of new disks put in it, and a SFF PC is appearing for the TV.

    Vmware server is needed for dual core support. Its free to download and you register to get a free serial.

    Ubuntu runs just as it would natively and looks exactly the same. The only problems is that there is slowdown when anything demands graphics (which doesnt matter for f@home). Remember to have lots of RAM (2GB+) and remember that youll need an ISO image of ubuntu 6.10 64 bit. Then you simply create a local host give it a resonable amount of hard disk space and 512megs of RAM.

    To install f@home console clients on linux is also complicated. If you get that far ill post how to do it.

    You're trying to guess the structure of a hugely complicated protein at random.
    Given that this project allegedly has scientists at the helm they should know that such an endeavour would be futile. I can only conclude that despite appearances that isn't what the program is doing.
