    I installed Folding@home on my mac mini (g4 version). However I'm not sure if it's working or not. The progress bar is at zero percent for a long time. How long does it usually take to complete one of these jobs?

    It depends on which WU you have and the processor. A G4 takes a bit longer then a G5 or an Intel (faster cpu). If you want to check you are folding, look in the activityviewer, there are some processes working, one of them is FahCore_XX.exe . If that is using most of your processorpower, then it is folding! If it is not showing, then it isn't folding
