Thanks gusy. I'M going to check this out again on my next day off. Joshua, your having a BFL miner shipped to you? I didn't know that there was anything tangible to do with bitcoin, please enlighten me.

I think I'm one of the only people on this list that does not actively mine. I bought one the BFL miners, but it hasn't shipped yet. Most of my knowledge has come setting up various services that people can use. If you are wanting some information on setting something up to use bitcoind then let me know. I can point you to some useful docs and code =) Shameless plug: https://github.com/nbobtc/bitcoind-php

      I use this small script to prep a ubuntu 12.04+ box for CPU
      mining. If you've got BFL devices I think you just add the
      --enable-bitforce flag to the autogen line. It looks like you're
      already the right direction for GPU mining. As a side note I had
      to edit my ~/.cgminer/cgminer.conf to force the fans to 100% and
      GPU autoclock at startup. Welcome to the profitable world of BTC!

      cd cgminer

      ./autogen.sh --enable-cpumining


      sudo make install

      Yeah, You will need the AMD App SDK.  That link
        should have the stuff you need.  You will also need to run the
        AMD official drivers for your distro.  Should be able to pick
        them up on the AMD website as well.

        If you are interested in mining in a pool, here is
          one I recommend:  https://eclipsemc.com/

        You may also want to get into the Bitcoin
          exchanges (similar to the New York Stock Exchange, but for
          bitcoins) I highly recommend these guys:  https://mtgox.com

        Once you begin mining on the pool, you will
          received btc for every block the pool finds.  Its a
          proportional payout, but it can be a steady payout.  What I
          do, is have Eclipse setup to deposit my earnings directly into
          my Mt.Gox account.  I then buy and sell those btc as the
          market price changes.  Once you learn the market tendencies,
          you can make a pretty good bit off simply buying and selling.

        That should get your started, but feel free to ask
          if you have any questions.

              Lynn, the README file from cgminer told me
                to download AMD ADL SDK. This was all I found on their
                site: http://developer.amd.com/tools/heterogeneous-computing/amd-accelerated-parallel-processing-app-sdk/downloads/#one  
                Does that look right? 


                Joshua, I'M completely new and know absolutely noting
                about it but am wanting to get started. So I want to
                know everything your willing to share. Thanks guys.

                    There are a few of us bitcoin miners on the
                      LUG.  I have been mining for nearly two years now,
                      and been very profitable.  
                    If you are simply wanting to mine, you can join
                      a mining pool, and use pretty much any distro you
                      wish for mining on AMD hardware.  I would highly
                      recommend using cgminer as its really flexible and
                      powerful.   https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=28402.0

                      You can checkout the
                        repo on github, clone it and build it. The
                        instructions are in the docs. It has a lot of
                        useful, or at least what I think is, information
                        in there.

                        That's to get a headless bitcoind client up and

                        Is there anything specific about bitcoin you
                        want to know?

                                Anyone know how to get
                                  started with bitcoin on Linux. Bear in
                                  mind that I've never done anything
                                  with bitcoin on any OS so I literally
                                  know nothing.
