Installing and configuring F@H just takes a couple of commands.
First of all we need to download the F@H client installation files...
The wget command downloads files from the internet, we're using it to download the Ubuntu F@H client from their website.
Once the download has completed we just need to tell Ubuntu to install the package...
The installer will prompt you for a username, team number, passkey, system utilization profile and autostart settings.
sudo dpkg -i fahclient_7.3.6_amd64.deb
You can safely just keep hitting ENTER to accept the default choices and you'll be up and folding straight away. If you have an existing username or team you can just enter your values instead of accepting the defaults. You don't need to register a username if you want to use one, just use it as your 'username' value.
The team number is only used if you want your users progress to count in team standings, if you're just in it for the science then this isn't required.
Some people enjoy having team or user bragging rights (try and get yourself in the top 100 folders), whereas some teams will reward you for participation.
A passkey is used to tie a particular member to a username. Because there is no restriction on people choosing user names then obviously there are going to be more than one user trying to use the same unique name. Having a passkey ensures that your points are only going to affect your standings rather than everyone that uses your username.
The system utilization profile configures how much of your machines power is going to be used for folding, it ranges from as little as possible to as much as possible.
The auto-start setting is self-explanatory. Do you want your F@H client to automatically start when the system boots?
Once you have the client running on your blades, you can use the FAHcontrol software on another machine to keep track of the progress/logs of all of your clients.
