Hey guys

If you run this program on OS X... I made a SystemStarter script set  
that will allow you to start and stop the service at boot... plus it  
should show up in the Boot splash


Just put the uncompressed and permissions preserved folder into your  
/Library/StartupItems/ folder.  BTW... in order for this to work, your  
folding client has to be in the folder /Distributed\ Folding/.

Or just edit the DistributedFolding file inside the folder to change  
directory to wherever you personally have stored the item.
