Ubuntu 10.10

No need of a GPU on a folding rig. :thumb:

^ Word, there are some good guides out there for installing but they escape me at the moment.


Aaahhh, I think I used this one:

Will I lose lots from just sticking with windows and if I stay with windows what would be the best version, when this system is done with its folding uses it will be my backup gamer and home server.

Just for the CC, use 'nix. PPD is worthwhile. Stoanee's link is called Musky's Mix, a Ubuntu install I have followed numerous times. If you do it by the letter, it is relatively easy to set up.
Once over, use W7 Pro or Ultimate so that both sockets are recognized.

Linux kicks ass for folding. Just dual boot or run one hdd with Linux & another one with windoze.

Fine you two win Linux it is I will grab some 1tb's tomorrow from work and setup 1 as linux and then the raptors as windows in raid 0 :)

Another option is to run Linux in a virtual box inside a windows install.

I have two machines running it, one using VMware player for 8 threads and Virtual box for 12. Note: VMware player must be version 3.0.

Excellent guide for bigadv setup can be found here:VMware && Linux bigadv folding

I think you can but, it isn't nearly as good as in windows due to drivers I think.
