Also, if you want to chew out work units faster (i.e. every 9 or so hours), it's better to use the command line version (DOS version) then the WIN32 version. Even with my pathetic 233MHz, I can put out a work unit every 8-9 hours. With my 933MHz, I put out one every 6-7 hours when all is well with the system. Plus there is a SETI "Frontend" that allows you to see how much you have processed and to set up your units. At present, I have 1 I work on with 9 waiting to be worked on.
