[CentOS] Folding at Home + CentOS 4.3 = success

The Folding at Home client seems to be a wonderful stressor of the CentOS 
server systems I've been burning in.  I've been running two copies of 
the client on physical dual-core and single die dual-core machines for a 
few days now.  Nary a whimper from the machines and only a slight 
elevation in temperature (they're 1RU rackmount systems with 
aggressive/loud fans).  In contrast, I loaded the client on a few Win2K 
(server and workstation) and my WinXP laptop and every single one of 
them eventually bombed out the client (though without crashing the 
machines).  All were running the 5.04beta client.

So I guess it's time to deploy these puppies.  (Darn, just when I was 
poised to break into the top 10 on the CentOS team...heh)

Cheers,
