    Hey guys, so I've read the FAQ and what not and I really hate asking for help, but I'm stuck.

    I'm using an i7 MBP on 10.6.4.

    What do I need to download and run to get this set up? I'd like to use the graphical client (if possible). I like to have it run next to me at work and it's kinda interesting to watch.

    So basically I downloaded this one. (attachment 1)
    Then I downloaded this (attachment 2)
    And that folder contains these (attachment 3)

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. I'm already using SETI@Home, Rosetta@Home, and Milky Way 3D mapping. I feel Folding@Home has a greater purpose than most of these (Rosetta is sorta the same).

    THANKS!

    Very few here use the graphical client, but isn't there a pref pane to start running it?
    You also need a passkey.

    Okay, So I'll use the text client too, but when I followed the directions on the site, it gave me something for a beta version and said that had expired in 2008 :confused:

    Can someone assist me with the command line prompts. I'm new to terminal on a Mac.

    I really like using Increase because it gives me readily available information on what's going on without opening the terminal and having to remember any esoteric commands.

    Great site, hopefully that can answer a lot of my questions.

    However, the link for Increase is down... :confused:
