Three units done in 80hours 30 minutes.

The key are blank screen saver set from the control panel in window 98
continuous processing set from seti@home under SETINGS
short time for screen saver startup with no activity - 3 minutes
keep all windows closed if not necessary.
automatic callup for new data - this can be a pain. Do it when you know it
is likely to occur at night when you are sleep.

466 mz processor
96 meg memory
