3.0Charlie can check them to keep me honest
Yes Sir, will do.

Actually, it looks like a daunting task, but I can re-install vmware, Ubuntu 7.04 and have F@H running in about 1 hour. But I strongly suggest to have at least 2Gb of Ram. I tried that on my lappy with 1Gb with not much luck.

I will perform the same installation tonight on the E2140. Been running it for a week on the E6400, without even a hickup. Simply install vmware (found this info to install vmware: Folding@Home SMP Client with VMware & Ubuntu), then install Ubuntu with the .iso image, then install and run F@H.

Voila! That's it.


edit: since the version of FAH has been revised, the file name changed as follows:

tar xzvf FAH6.00beta1-Linux.tgz

edit2: Stanfor has changed the file location: see this post:
