I did something similar (not quite as many units), and started to clock up
some cycles on the Distributed.NET stuff, but decided to put the systems back
online with the SETI stuff when the group was announced.

I saved the group list last night and again later on this morning and just
worked out the differences between the two over about 12 hours and the
reordered top 10 looks like :-)

The systems I use vary from P100's to a couple of dual 800 Meg boxes, most of
which are running Linux of one flavour or another.  The majority of them are
part of our proxy/cache service and so as not to interfere with that they
only run SETI@Home evenings/weekends..

I have set the boxes up to cycle through several units which helps to keep the 
boxes running if the SETI@Home data server goes down (like it did a couple of 
weeks ago)


p.s: We have several large SGI Origin 2000 and 3000 systems along with the
816 Processor Cray T3E, and various other BeoWulf systems, but I don't 
have access to any of them ... :-(
