    I recently downloaded and installed the F@H client onto my PowerBook G4, but now find that the software just makes the fans go like the clappers so have stopped running ot. Is there a way to transfer the allocated work unit onto my iMac G5 and queue it directly behind the WU the iMac is currently working on?

    The WU doesn't have to be completed until the 28th April so there's plenty of time for the iMac to do both.

    You can put it on your imac/transfer it, but you can't put it in a queue behind the WU it is doing now. When your iMac has finished its WU and send it to Stanford, stop the folding client and replace the following items in your fah folder from your powerbook:
    - work folder
    - unitinfo.txt
    - queue.dat
    - fahlog.txt
    Start your client again and it should go further with the WU. You might need to restart your iMac to use the extra altivec boost.

    Thank you for the information. I will keep an eye on the current WU on the iMac to make sure I catch when it finishes.
