I'm going to try a 64-bit ubuntu and BOINC in the next few days.
Have all the parts and the system half build :-)
Athlon 64 X2 3800+

As far as I know there is no 64-but BOINC
but will go take another look.

If you aren't on a team give ours a try.
Over 9 million in TC for SETI.
Running 30+ BOINC projects
79th in overall teams. TC
