If I was setting up a new farm today, I'd probably go with farmpuma's suggestion of using USB thumbdrives as boot devices. Load Ubuntu Server on 'em and run the Linux command line SMP client.
is that as easy as puttin in some kind of install CD and then downloading some folding@home installation and running it? I'm really NOT a linux guy heh. I've never messed with it more than following someone else's instructions to get something running. (thanks notfred) If its linux would I need 4G thumbdrives, or could I find a bulk deal somewhere on like 15 1G thumb drives?
I believe I was getting about 1,000 ppd/cpu that many years ago with my setup at that time. I got the 5.8 mill points after about a years worth of crunching if I remember correctly. hell its been too long ago, lol.
