Default multiple instances

How do you run multiple instances of prime95? My p4c has hyperthreading but I can't seem to get two prime95 running at the same time. I feel like a NOOB! ops:

Do a search for hyperthreading on the board here. The answer to running two can be found in the readme file :)
[code:1]
COMMAND LINE ARGUMENTS
----------------------

-An This is used to run two or more copies of prime95
from the same directory. Using this command line argument
causes prime95 to use a different set of filenames for the
INI files, the results file, the log file, and the spool file.
Just use a different value of n for each copy of
prime95.exe you start.

And when you're done searching, you'll find that running two prime95's on a hyperthreaded machine isn't worth it. :)
