Setting Up Thin Folding at Home Clients
As I'm sure you are aware, we have started our own Folding at Home (FAH) team here at Mutaku. We have been working on getting some more of our old hardware, that had been collecting dust on a shelf, back to work folding proteins. One goal in mind was to try and minimize the amount of power that each machine would require, as well as attempt to cut down on unnecessary heat and noise. The end result is today's guide. We will go through a brief HOW-TO on setting up a "thin" client running a Linux live-cd to add to our collection of boxes running the FAH command line interface (CLI) client.
