Hey all,
I just got a Xilinx ML605 and was wondering how to use it to mine. I saw on the mining hardware chart of the bitcoin wiki that it is fairly effective, is there a prewritten program, or can I use the GUIMiner?

If not, is there a tut on how to set this up?
thanks

i think this is the place to get started, i don't think there is a ML605 mining for dummys guide out there
also you would ned the xilinx development studio, but normaly you get it with an ML605 development kit afaik

The board should be able to get 300 M/has according to the bitcoin wiki, it cost me nothing.

I doubt it's really that low, but as I said I am getting it free and its way better than my Nvidia card
