You see, although [H]ardOCP has the #1 Folding team on the planet, we need your help to stay there. Folding is easy, all you have to do is download and install the Folding@Home program, set your team number to TEAM #33 and you are all set. If you still need help or have any questions, forum member "Xilikon" put all the Folding guides that a person could possibly need into one easy-to-find location. Hit the link, follow the directions and you’ll be up and folding in no time at all.

It's just that easy! Oh yeah, congrats to Team #33 for breaking the 2 BILLION POINTS mark today as well!
