EDIT: Not sure what was wrong, but I got it working with DiabloMiner.
I'm a total noob miner, as I've never used anything but the BitMinter client. Hence, I'm way more familiar with everybody in the BitMinter thread, but let me know if it's inappropriate for me to post this here vs the mining support thread.
I found a computer at work with a GeForce 8800GT. The computer is logged off about 90% of the time, so I want to setup some startup/logon/logoff scripts to mine with it when it's not in use.
Before starting all this, I tested with the BitMinter client and it gave me about 19.5 MH/s.
One poster claims that the 8800GT does about 20 MH/s using Phoenix and 24 MH/s using puddinpop's RPC CUDA miner. Not real impressive, but I'll take free hashes. :-) I spent about an hour and a half trying to make the RPC miner work, but here's what I'm getting on ports 8332 and 80.
rpcminer-cuda.exe -url=http://mint.bitminter.com:8332/ -user=Username.Worker -password=Password
Could not retrieve work from RPC server.
CURL return value = 22
No blocks are being hashed right now. This can happen if the application is still starting up, you supplied incorrect parameters, or there is a communications error connecting to the RPC server.
I'd be happy to just use Phoenix, but I also spent about an hour trying to make that work, without success. Here's what I get when I try to use ports 8332 or 80.
phoenix -u http://Username.Worker:Password@mint.bitminter.com:8332/ -k poclbm DEVICE=0 AGGRESSION=4

I also tried Phatk and Phatk2, but I couldn't find a way to disable BFI_INT. Here's what I get with those kernels:
FATAL kernel error: Failed to apply BFI_INT patch to kernel! Is BFI_INT supported on this hardware?
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
