Can someone please give me an example of how to have Seti BOINC running 24/7 in the background on my linux box? The box is always up, but I'm not always logged in. If I log out, BOINC dies and I don't process WUs. I don't remember to restart the process when I start up again, so I don't process WUs. :-(

I'm guessing there needs to be a script and a cron job to check and see if BOINC is running, and if not, start it...

Can someone help? Thanks...

Oh, BTW, I'm running RH 9 in an Athlon box. :-)
