The NFSNET client can be run manually if you give it correctly formatted input files. You will find that it has a difficult time scaling up to large problems, and even if it works you'll find it's much slower than the lattice sievers we use now.

Edit: I see you were asking about NFS@Home; the siever code used there is precisely the same as the one used in GGNFS, with a very few mods to work with BOINC.
