Can my old 32 bit computer participate in wcgrid. foldinghome etc ?

Hi there.

Have this old computer equipped with an AMD 2000+ CPU (from around 2003). This machine already have installed Bunsenlabs, and I use it for backup purpose.

The computer runs the whole time in a cold basement, and I wonder if it is possible at all to share some of it's CPU cycles for better purposes.

I already have a wcgrid account, but the software I used (Boinc manager) only exists as 64 bit. Also on folding home web page, there seen to only be 64 bit version available.

Is there any means to get participate on wcgrid or foldinghome using 32 bit version of Bunsenlabs Linux ?
