Folding on a Dual Processor Mac
I know that you can do two proteins at once but I need step by step directions on how to do it and keep both processors folding. (The directions @Folding@Home are confusing)

It can be as simple as running some code (one for each processor in separate folders) in a shell script, such as:
./fah4 -local -advmethods -forceasm

1. Create two folders containing the CLI version of Fold at home
2. Open the terminal and type CDspace "cd "
3. Drag one of the folders to the terminal and then do a return in the terminal. the line in the terminal should read something like
4. In the terminal type "./fah4 -local" this will start the whole thing
or to be more verbose:
./fah4 tells start (./) Folding at home (fah4)
Use the preferences in the same folder as the applications ( -local)
Without the local it will use the same preferenses for both clients and that is not good at all.
5-7. Repeat for the second folder
Hope it helps
