Unlike traditional banking where clients have only a few account numbers, with Bitcoin people can create an unlimited number of accounts (addresses). This can be used to easily track payments, and it improves anonymity.

I set it up last night to have a play.

No dramas, followed the namecoin wiki to configure namecoind.exe.  Ran it from a command window.  Took a while to download the blockchain - you can see the progress by the growing blockchain file.

Then opened another command window and ran some namecoin queries eg. "namecoind.exe getinfo" (or something like that).

It showed the progress of the blockchain download.

Then I created a new "Other" miner in guiminer, pointed it at a namecoin pool and away it went.  Woke up this morning and had 2.something namecoins.  Next step - sell my namecoins for btc, I guess.

If you have the grunt you could probably mine solo, I've only got about 200MH/s.

Open a second cmd window and run "namecoind getinfo".  Oh, and make sure your bitcoin.conf for namecoin has set  "server=1"

how do I figure out my namecoin address to give to the pool?

I ran generate new address and it gave me one but it starts with 1.  I thought namecoin addresses started with N?

edit: address I generated seems to work with the namecoin pool.

so I guess I just sit back and wait?

You are correct, namecoin addresses are supposed to start with N.

Are you running the latest version of namecoin?

You can use the namecoind.exe to generate a new address.  Type "namecoind.exe help" (make sure you have namecoind.exe already running in the background) to get a list of all the commands.

i ran "getnewaddress me"

me is my username in the config file.

validate address with that address generated:
isvalid true
ismine true
account ""

wiki says old namecoin addresses started with 1.  so it should still work.
