I set it up on my backup machine which uses XP Pro ( and Mint on a second partition ). Here are some specs, I'm not sure if this is all you need - -
Gateway E 4000 400828
XP Pro SP3
2.40 gigahertz Intel Pentium 4
I set it up for the BC team - 38444. After running for about twelve hours, the icon shows - 2700/10000. So I guess it's running ok.
Now for my questions - will it hurt the processor running wide open 24 hours a day? Does this old machine have enough "oomph" to make this worthwhile? I rarely use this machine, so I don't mind it being "tied up". This seems like a wonderful project, and I just wanted to be sure my efforts were worthwhile to contribute to it.
EDIT - - - I forgot to mention I use broadband cable.
