Haven't seen any sys requirements.

It's getting chilly lately and I thought I'd start running my space heaters, uhm, I mean old computers. I'm gunna tear down my Beowulf cluster of Natalie Portman... i mean Pentium 233 machines. Each have 128 megs ram and will be installing linux... are these useful for folding?

I've always been an Oxford man in the past. Is Stanford really any better?

As far as the Oxford/Stanford rivalry I can't help but sure, 233 Mhz can be used for folding. We would love to have you jump aboard too.

Yes.

P is indeed for Pentium.
A is for Athlon.
L is for linux, which will one day rule the world.
and F is for Itanium, which is spelled F-A-I-L-U-R-E.

Hey cool, I wrote a little poem.

How well does the linux client run? Ive been thinking about switching my router box over to linux lately and am just wondering if it will severely impact that machines output or routing performance.

I would stick with the little $50 router box. Setting up a Linux router is a pita. Unless you like them sorta things. I guess the experience is kinda fun.

Your poem needs work... keep it up and you may become something formidable.

Not really. Its just a few commands from the command line, setting up a script in the rc5 directory, and writing a configuration file.

'sides, I hate those stupid little embedded router boxes.
