Default Farm Setup Help

I picked up 3 industrial machines, all identical, Intel P4s with minimalistic video . I was going to fold with them in a daisy chain setup, so there is only one monitor and 3 cpus processing. All have hard drives, cd roms and are running Windoze98. Where do I start to make this work or is it not worth it?

if you don't pay for electricity then its worth a go for the few extra points

or else its not worth the time and money on utilities bills

I can't see it really being worth it unless you don't pay for power , as was mentioned above.

Forget folding with P4s - the ppd output is not worth the power needed. Unless said boards have PCI-e slots...
