split a prime95 queue & client installation
 
How can I split an actual work to two computers (for four threads for instance 2 threads to another computer)?

Additionally I´m interested in a method to install prime95 to several computers at one. I don´t want to start and setup every computer seperatelly. Best would be if I just have one base image ... and some configuration changes.

Which configuration options I have to change (pc hardware, ...) to automate such an installation?

You can't have it do the same expo on 2 machines. You can do multiple expos, the total output will be doubled.

Which configuration options I have to change (pc hardware, ...) to automate such an installation?[/QUOTE]Several folks have done this.[LIST=1][*]You will want to get the basic install up and running, and set all the parameters, like work type, etc. on your base machine.[*] As an [U]optional[/U] intial set up step that you may want to do, is to make sure all of your primenet settings (like worktypes) are set.[*]Then copy the Prime95 folder to a USB drive or the like. [*]You will want to delete the worktodo.txt and any fxxxxxx, pxxxxxx, qxxxxx, and rxxxxx files (on the USB drive).[*]You will want to clear out the "ComputerGUID=" and "ComputerID=" [U]values[/U] in local.txt.[*]Set "ManualComm=1" in prime.txt. (This is just a convience)

This is the basic set up for the install "package".

[*]Take it to the new machine, copy the folder, run prime95 from the new machine.[*]Set the new computer id from the menu.[*]Make sure any computer specific settings are changed (especially true if your are using family and friend's PCs.[*]Make sure you are connected to the net, then from the menu uncheck, "Do Not contact PrimeNet automatically".[*]Move to the next machine, repeat the steps 7 - 11[/LIST]
