I entered the team number in the control panel. Is that all i have to do? Also, How do i know if it is connecting allright and working? The protein thing is moving, it says that it is working.... in the corner, but it doesn't show any progress. Plz help me out here.

EDIT: N/M. I'm at 1 percent now I didn't think it would take this long. but still, how do i join the team??

You pretty much just put the team number in the config. Team stats are here: http://folding.stanford.edu/cgi-bin/teampage?q=32407 
You won't be listed yet because you haven't finished a WU yet.

Maybe have a look if your username is taken already:
http://folding.stanford.edu/cgi-bin/searchstats 
search for whatever username you entered to make sure no one else is using it. Do a search for your name and see.

I searched for caboose and it found nothing... If that's what you used, that's great. It'll only fall through once you finish a WU, so check those pages then to see if your name is there.

Welcome to the team.

It depends on the WU. some only take a few hours, some others take 2-3 days.

Depends on the computer you are running on too.

Why could you only fold 2hrs per day? if you are at school using this software, I highly advise that you take it off. You can get fined in excess of $400,000!! It has happened so don't do it unless the school approves of it and knows you are doing it.

Why?? I already told my lab teacher about it........but why would you be fined??

because it uses up network bandwidth and downloads software. If the school does not give you permission, you could get fined.

Network Administrators are really strict about bandwidth usage and what it is used for. I would clear it with the principle before doing this.

The principal here wouldn't know anything about bandwith. I've talked with the computer lab admin and network admin and they are both ok with it. Thanks for your concern though
