That depends on your computing power. For example, I find a prime every three days or so. It more or less also depends on luck.
However, even if you are not finding many primes, you still help the project a lot by contributing some spare computing power!

The primegen subproject is generating a public sequential prime number database (see front page of www.primegrid.com). But when you set "run test applications" to yes, you'll get only TPS (LLR) Workunits, as long as there are any available. You can check if there are any TPS-LLR workunits by looking at the first chart on www.primegrid.com/?charts.

I have a 3.2 GHZ Intel P4. How long must I test to find a prime?

Probably arund a week, depending your luck. Maybe real short, maybe longer.

I needed one and a half months to find one prime running two 1,5 GHz Intel Celeron for about 16 hours per day. But you can't make any forecasts when you'll find one. You may also get a resent workunit to verify a prime found by someone else.
