I am new to Linux and Ubuntu so tell me if I am doing something stupid. I think that I am following the instructions at Folding@Home to the letter but maybe I am missing something. Basically it can not recognize the the fah6 file exists even though I can see it. I tried changing permissions as well to -rwxr-xr-x but that didn't help either.

The instructions are at http://folding.stanford.edu/English/LinSMPGuide

Here is what I am seeing.

david@david-ubuntu:~$ mkdir -p ~/folding
david@david-ubuntu:~$ cd ~/folding
david@david-ubuntu:~/folding$ curl -O http://www.stanford.edu/group/pandegroup/folding/release/FAH6.02-Linux.tgz

it's easier to lauch synaptic and install it from there.
I don't see folding at home in Synaptic.I even checked the third party software. Do I need to manually add another repository to pick up F@H?
