I just installed SETI@Home, and it is not doing any tasks. I have looked at the preferences multiple times, restarted it, and it says no work done. What should I do to get it to start working?

They are pulling more raw data from their archives to be split and this process happens rather slowly. There are no available workunits at this time.

Do you have any idea when there will be some workunits available?

They are slowly being made available. Like I said, they are pulling raw data and putting it through the splitter, but people are gobbling up the work faster than it is being created at the moment.

When they are available, how will I get a workunit or a task?

BOINC will keep trying until it gets some. You don't have to do anything.
