    I had to take the upgrade path :(

    So far I've been rather lucky, the only drawback is my NTFS clusters are 512kb in size rather than 4096kb.

    This proggie will let you change your cluster size.

    Xteq X-setup has many more tweaks also.
    Download only the plug-ins you need. The program has an update tab to the plug-ins.

    Well, it seems that X-Setup does not have a plug-in to do that, the plug-in enables a change size for I/O.

    However, this microsoft article shows it can be done.

    shameless SETI Group plug

    It works on the concept that many hands make light work. What is does is download data from Berkley, chew on it for a while, and send it back. We are analyzing radio data for any patterns that might indicate non-natural source.

    You just head on over to <a href="http://setiathome.ssl.berkeley.edu">The SETI@home website</a> and download the program. I have run it on some real clunkers. I am currently using a laptop with a AMD-K6-366 and I pump out about three work units a week. A P-200 should do something better than one a week.

    Which may be sneered at by those with overclocked super computers -- but a hundred machines doing a WU a week each is WU every 100 minutes. I use the DOS driver version and I have not noticed any slowdown/speedup in the computer if SETI is running or not. It uses the CPU on a last priority status.

    Once you've started crunching you can join a team. You can join a big team and not be noticed, or you can join a <a href="http://setiathome.ssl.berkeley.edu/stats/team/team_150073.html">little team</a> and be the third most productive member.

    You can also write up a <a href="http://setiathome.ssl.berkeley.edu/stats/team/team_150073.html">profile</a> for others to read your bio and thoughts on crunching.
