I am new to grid computing. I have a mac with 12 core (24 logical cores). Should I be running only one BOINC client, or should there be a BOINC client for each processor?

If all is set right, it will process 24 units simultaneously with just one BOINC install, and even another unit or two using the video card's processor.
