So, I'd been running boinc for a week or so, after figuring out the network connection thing I was dealing with. I rebooted my computer today to remove a CD drive that I'm not using, and when I fired things back up and boinc started, my project was gone! It's still in the folder where I left it, but boinc seems to have lost the configuration or something!

What do I do?? If I reattach to the project will it find everything again??

Well, if I start the boinc client at termainal it appears to be working properly. Boinc-manager seems to be the hangup, as if I try to start that I don't get anything. Any ideas?

Have you started the BOINC client before the BOINC manager ? - The BOINC manager would connect to the client, and if the client is not avialable, it ran into a timeout.
At http://boinc.berkeley.edu/trac/wiki/AutoStart are some boot scripts available, which starts the BOINC client at boot.

Check that your auto start script (if any) is changing to your boinc directory before starting boinc.

For example, If you're just running /home/me/BOINC/boinc the boinc process does not know to look in /home/me/BOINC

Instead you should run cd /home/me/BOINC; ./boinc

Well, I don't have an autostart script. Like I said before, if I start boinc as a client it starts properly, but I can't do anything with it because I have to change the proxy server for it, thanks to my stupid internet service provider..
