Default Uh, Lost

Okay, Ive Installed the Program and let it run through about 50 of these:
Test 1, 400 Lucas-Lehmer iterations Bla bla bla

And not sure where to go from there. I am just leaving it on and hoping that something will happen like a beep LOL. People keep talking about "progress" and "status" and I have X number of factoring digits or something. Is there a FAQ with those? I checked the one with the program but it is somewhat out of date. I would really like to hook-up more then this Comp since I have 5 More I can hookup (Not Nearly as high as the 51,000 mhz someone was claiming but I can get around 7,000 LOL). Thanks for all the help, I appreciate it.

It runs those for one hour to make sure your computer will work okay with prime95. At this point, it will revert to whatever work the server has assigned it. Make sure you leave it running for an hour straight, if you turn off your computer, it will reset.

PS: That is what I believe is happening, please correct me if I am misinformed.

You are correct. Wait for an hour and then see what happens. Unless when it asked you you did not enter a username in which case it will go into an infinite loop of testing.
There is a very good setup guide at. Of course it is for Team Prime Rib and you don't have to join and can select your own username and password as long as you use the same Username and Password across all the machines you use.
