quad proc's
I've got a mate who wants to participate in f@h :o

I don't know how man pc's he's got, but I think a lot cuz they use there fiber optics.
prob is: lotsa problems with his multiprocessor rig (rigs?). I don't know what or how, but f@h makes his 4cpu's go nuts...

any solution for this? I hope he doesn't quit the folding right now, cuz he might even have acces to more CPU powah then all u ppl have together:grr:

luckily, it's still under guarantee

dual folding by JBELL

Q: How do I setup multiple FAH clients on the same machine?

A: On a single processor machine, as with a dual processor, you need to create multiple folders with different names (e.g. C:\Folding@Home1 and C:\Folding@Home2) and follow the instructions on the "How to Install and Setup the console client", in Section 2.1, for each console client.

Multiple graphical (GUI) clients can not be run on the same machine, at this time.

It is important to note that your user name will be the same for all instances, but the userid must be different for each of the clients!

You will also need to create multiple FAH shortcuts (e.g. FAH1 and FAH2) on your desktop. And, it is very important that you use the -local switch in each of the FAH shortcuts!!!

For dual processor machines, you can set "affinity" (assigning each wu to a particular processor), but with today's newer technology it is not necessary. If you set affinity, you must do it on both the FAH2console.exe and the Core_65.exec.

QuadCPU = 4 CPU's :)

I used it @ work and folding works flawless on it though :)
