Stanford currently has a SMP client for folding that is available for Linux and Mac OSX only (no Windows client). For those of you with multi-core/multi-CPU systems, running the SMP client can result in faster processing and an increased PPD while making a valuable contribution to the folding project. However, if you're like me, you either don't have Linux installed on a multi-core/cpu machine or don't want to dedicate a box solely to Linux.
PlanentAMD64 has posted a guide
on how to set up the SMP client running Linux as a virtual machine using VM Ware. Sounds like an interesting project to me.
Update: here is a step-by-step guide for setting up file sharing in Ubuntu
. When the folding@home folder is shared, it means you can monitor the machine using a folding monitor (like FahMon) from another computer on the network.Note about monitoring Ubuntu/VMWare over network
If you are trying to monitor other machines on your network that are running Ubuntu in VMWare, follow the guides above, but use Ethernet = Bridged (in each Virtual Machine settings in VMWare), rather than Ethernet = NAT, in order to be able to access the Samba share from another machine. Ethernet = NAT gives Internet access, and the Samba share works on the local machine, but you need Ethernet = Bridged in order to see the shared folders from another computer --- hardnrg
