I have tried Windows virtual PC and VMware but had no success getting Ubuntu to load in those so i searched around and found Sun, http://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Downloads after starting it i loaded and ran the 32 bit version of Ubuntu with success but that is no good for folding,what you see on that screen is what happened when i tried to load the 64 bit.
Not to worry as i have all the time in the world to play around and see if i can get 64bit to run some other way.

Been doing some research and it appears that my CPU can not run 64bit operations, the next step is to see what my local PC guy has and maybe get a new Mobo at the same time.

Well don't ask how i did it (i have no idea) but i got into Bios and allowed virtualization loaded VMware and Ubuntu, now it just finding how to make folding run in virtual.
I downloaded it but it did not look the same as yours and no matter what i tried i could not get it to start up.
At least i have ubuntu running so i will try to progress from here.

Wow, that's some progress Bill! ^*^ Post some screenshots from VM and make sure to follow the guide right down to the punctuation marks, especially when you're doing something in the 'terminal'! :geek:

Create a folder for folding and then double click the fah6 icon and extract to that area.

OK, you're getting very close. Open up 'terminal' accessed by Applications/Accessories/terminal. Navigate to your folder, looks like all you need to do is 'cd FOLDING' w/o the quotes of course and then enter the following command string:
'./fah6 -smp -verbosity 9' again without the quotes, this will start the client. You will see a WU loading, and then either an a1 or a2 core. About 14 mins./frame is an a2 and over 30 mins is an a1. You want to see a2's.;)

If you start Task Manager then you should see around %55 CPU use and this would be normal.

Jeez, I'm getting excited now! ^*^ Good luck Bill! :yesnod:
