I'm right now running 2 x 256 in all 3 of my dedicated folders. Can I get by with a single 256 without slowing them down? That would go a long way toward building a couple more.

Even if you're running Windows XP that shouldn't be an issue. On this PC, at any given time, FAH is not using more than 30mb of memory (right now peak shows 21mb).

So long as you have enough memory to keep FAH and the OS running, I don't think having any more would have an effect on performance.

A lot of the terminals in my farm use 128MB of ram. It's more than enough for the LTSP kernel and the folding client to do everything they need to do. Also, remember that there's no other type of local storage in each terminal. Everything done locally has to fit within that 128MB. If you're going to be running windows though, it might be a better idea to stick with 256MB.

Good deal. I went to a show today, and picked up stuff needed for at least 1 more.
