Simply put - no. Not on a single-core/socket box.
Mime is also bang on, and has expounded on what I meant.
IF you have one total core/socket to compute on, you'll be lucky to get 1/3rd of the work done that you would by just running one instance of F@H. If you have multiple cores/sockets and oodles of RAM... that might work for you and increase your Folding throughput. There ARE easier ways though
WWLD - What Would Logan Do? Probably the same thing as Mime and build a Network-booted VM-based monstrosity for kicks and giggles... 4 cores/processors on one box? 4 VM sessions, each session bound to a different CPU/core by way of setting affinity and let each VM boot off the network server
Or... just use ImageCFG.exe to force affinity on each executable, separate folders for each instance you wish to run.
