INSTALLATION MANUAL
===================

The fci-client runs on Linux, FreeBSD, OpenBSD, Mac OS X and Windows,
the fci-server runs on Linux, and on FreeBSD & OpenBSD using Linux emulation.

The fci-client sends data from a client to the fci-server, among which are the
output of Dick Howells qd, Operating System and Hardware information and the
most interesting files in the Folding@Home client directory.

The server does almost all processing, and uses various tools to do it.

The tools uses by the FCI server are:
- xyz2pdb
- rasmol
- convert  (from ImageMagick)
- htpasswd (from Apache)

convert and htpasswd should be installed before FCI is.

xyz2pdb is shipped with FCI, just like Dick Howells qd is. xyz2pdb is used to
convert the current.xyz to a .pdb which is fed to rasmol.

A 32 bit Linux binary of rasmol is also shipped, but many Linux distros and
FreeBSD have native packages of rasmol. Rasmol is used to generate an image
and/or animation of the projects in the current.xyz which the clients upload.

convert is part of ImageMagick, it's used to compile animations out of multiple
rasmol generated images.
