Maybe not a direct answer to a folding question, but...
UIC's NAMD can spread calculations over several systems
(uses rsh to talk to each other).  You may also want to
keep an eye on NIH's site as they are currently bringing
up a Linux Beowulf system ("biowulf") but haven't publicised
it very much yet.
