  1. Comes with a nice suite of software that should take care of just about everything. Let me know how you get along with it. Might be a solution I use for others rigs.
  2. Looks good, I wasn't aware that take on ubuntu was out there. Nice find.. Being that ubuntu is debian based and used everywhere support is good as well..

    Ubuntu 7.10?

    Stick with 7.10, it is a nice stable release that won't give you any problems. May want to read up on Linux/ATI card combinations though.

    512 is enough to run ubuntu.
  5. It needs some updating, especially the [email protected] client as it is no longer available. There are newer versions of vmware and ubuntu available too, but there are also better linux distros available if folding is your primary reason for running linux in vmware. I'm working on a couple of other projects right now but when I finish those up I would be happy to update the guide and present more options as well..
  6. I'll have to keep an eye on my average once everything levels out but it looks like my latest reconfig of gentoo is going to net over 4000 ppd.
  7. LOL.. Probably be faster to learn everything you need to know about fixing the problem yourself than getting through how to ask a question.. Arch is alright, Opensuse has come a long with 10.3 for up and running distros..
  8. Finally got my software situation with Gentoo sorted out so I am back to folding on my main rig again. Seems to be running through %'s pretty good so all of the work may eventually pay off with some added PPD..
  9. In theory the blue slots have a shorter trace length so would have less latency and should be used as primary with 2 sticks of memory. Real world answer is that there is always variances from board to board, slot to slot so stick them in the blue, clock them for a few days then swap. Use whichever perform the best.
  10. The P35 is the far better chipset for a quad. It doesn't have any problems running 4 X 1Gigs of RAM at CL4 or overclocking 4 gigs of RAM. I have a the DFI LP P35 and the Asus P5K Premium. I prefer the Asus over the DFI, but they are so close it's basically a tie. http://www.diy-street.com/forum/showpost.p...76&postcount=82 Wevs has put together a nice component list for you as well. I have used the G.Skill HZ and have always been happy with them.
  11. Struggle through it bro, it's purely a mind over matter deal that requires you to understand that quitting anything you have done for 20+ years is tough. It just takes time for things to seem right again. I know what you are going through, never gave up smoking, but I gave up a 12 year I.V drug habit cold turkey 8 years ago. Talk about the shakes, spent 3 nights in the hospital and a little bit of time in the loon ward over that ordeal.
  12. Cool. Thanks for picking up the slack for me. I have some software issues I have to get sorted out before I get back to folding, shouldn't be much longer. (I hope)
  13. If I added up everything from the 4 pc's in my house I doubt it would total 250GB and that includes drive images and backups..
  14. I would have to agree that there are some people that just need to be killed. Didn't want to say anything just in case a body happens to show up near me..
  15. I don't even know how to respond to this because it is just completely idiotic. If someone came in to my shop with that crap I would at the very least knock his teeth out. Might as well go to court for something worthwhile.
