Rob,

Here are the lines that I have in my /etc/apt/sources.list  that 
point to the boinc software,  I used these lines and ran apt-get 
update, installed Boinc Manager <used Adept, because I wanted to 
browse and see what was available for Boinc>.  On the Desktop menu 
Boinc appears either under "Utilities" or "Science & Math"

Once installed, the first time I opened it, I was asked for the 
appropriate project information... and went on from there.

deb             http://pkg-boinc.alioth.debian.org/ubuntu breezy universe
deb-src         http://pkg-boinc.alioth.debian.org/ubuntu breezy universe


Kubuntu is running on a P3-300MHz system here, so I'm not overloading 
Boinc.  I only assigned that machine to a single project.

Good luck,

Eric
