Let me be clear that this is for myself - eg nothing against the EULA. I want to start folding again on my iBook, but I don't want to see the client. No dock icon, no menu extra, pretty much 'set and forget'. Is it possible? And if so, can someone walk me through it? Of course I'll be folding for 3446 :)

Hmmm.. I'm not a highly technical guy - not familiar at all with Terminal, don't really have an idea of what terms like bash, cron, tcsh are. I think this script is too complicated for the likes of me :) I went through it, but I have no idea of F@H is running, and it quit with an error.

It seems like mc68k's documentation is meant for those who are already familiar with folding & terminal, I was kind of hoping for a script that didn't demand technical knowledge.

you really don't need to know anything of folding with mc68k script, or of the Terminal. I was the same as you, didn't knew anything about both subjects. And I got it to work! The only thing you have to do is double click the installer and then type in Terminal your username and teamnumber and answer some other question that you have to answer with every folding app. You can see if it works if you open the activity monitor. You can see that the app folding/FAHcore is using a fair amount of cpu power.

i hope stanford makes a version that sets itself up as dual in the future. it seems long overdue

there's a field in the rc5 client that says number of processors and u just change the value....seems like stanford isn't too concerned about this
