    Is there an official team guru3d for other projects (like Milkyway@home, WCG, Spnhenge, etc), or does guru3D officially participate as a team in Folding@home?

    Reason I'm asking, is that my rig is already set up for boinc (with some projects I'm genuinely interested in), and it seems boinc (or atleast milkyway@home) manages to load-balance three ati-gpus (5970+5850) all by it self.

    No it already takes a lot of effort to manage one group, so Folding is the only official supported compute group we have.

    ok, then I'll spend some time reading up on how to get folding@home to behave properly when launching three sessions (one for each gpu) from three different folders (of course) to utilize all of them. Right now it throws warnings that need interaction to get stuff running (things that doesn't start automatically at login is ... likely to not be started. My mind usually fails to remember stuff).

    Or, alternatively, stay with "team norway" and boinc for that machine. :p

    *grin*

    Got the start-three-clients-and-stop-messing-about bit sorted now, so if only I could get a work unit I'd be happy...

    edit: I've now set "no new work" for all my boinc projects so ... I guess Team Norway will be pissed at me...

    Now, the next stupid question is: For my two "headless" boxes (running server 2008r2 and storage server 2008), should I run the SMP client or two instances of the regular client?

    Would posting my method-of-madness for getting stuff to work be of use to the forum?

    If you are intrested in running F@H, MW@H or other DC projects, you may need to provide additional details:
    Hardware used
    Usage of system: runs 24/7 DC projects only; runs DC projects plus light usage; etc
    Preferred DC Project: F@H, MW@H, Bionic, etc, none

    I have seen some users running F@H and other DC projects together but it does require some time to correctly configure the clients to make the best possible use of their hardware.
