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

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

Thanks
