Default Folding setup help with a 4870X2

Hey all, well i setup my watercooling for my 4870X2.
I installed the folding gpu client.
When i turn it on it only uses 1 core.

So i looked it up and found the instructions on the folding site.
Quote:
What about multi-gpu support?

Yes, you can add the "-gpu N" flag (N starts at 0) to your extra parameters in the advanced page of the systray clients, or the advances settings of the console clients. Again N starts with 0 not 1, so your primary display is 0, the next is 1, etc. Each client if you are running more then one needs a different -gpu and a different machineD, and a different working directory, so follow the instructions for multiple clients.

My question is, do i need to install 2 folding gpu clients? So i can then enter that "-gpu 0" and "-gpu 1" in each?
Steps please.....noob here :)


Also do i have to have a log in and password to run the client on both cores?

Help please? Thanks

Well, I can't get that procedure to work, and it's pretty much what I did when I had 2 3870's. Guess it's still not X2 friendly.
