Good, heh.

And that file is in the folder with poclbm in it?

That file is in the miner.bat file (not a folder) I open it by right clicking and selecting "Edit"  I put the file in their using Notpad and saved it as "All Files".  (I also tried saving it as a txt file)

and is the username in the form of:

Login.suffix ?

ie: if you log in to the mining.bitcoin.cz site with "someotherguy" and your miner account (on the my account screen) is "miner1"

it should be:  --user=someotherguy.miner1

Also, it should be noted that if you are trying to mine for yourself, the --host switch should be 127.0.0.1, not mining.bitcoin.cz.

Yes it is in the same folder as I extracted the miner into after downloading it.

No - in the miner.bat file, it should read as what myrkul posted to correctly login.

Ok, assuming you have bitcoin running with the -server switch on, the line in miner.bat should be:

poclbm.exe -v -w 128 -f 30 --host=127.0.0.1 --port=8332 --user=myusername --pass=mypassword

myusername and mypassword are the information you put into bitcoin.conf

Heh, yes that is most likely it. Make an account, and it will tell you how to do things from there.

important distinction: If you want to mine in Slush's pool, you don't need bitcoin running at all.
If you want to mine solo, you should have the miner.bat pointing at your own computer (the line I posted above)

Advantage of pooled mining: steady income of small amounts
Advantage of solo mining: you get to keep the whole 50 bitcoins, but it may take some time to get them.

Can I run the miner without logging into mining.bitcoin.cz?

You can solo mine - just change the http://mining.bitcoin.cz to 127.0.0.1, and then the username/pass to the username and pass in bitcoin.conf

Then run it and it should connect.

Yes but now we are back to I cant open or run the miner.  When I click on the miner.bat file it opens a DOS box and closes it right away.

Restart and try again. When you've restarted, right click on the tray icon for bitcoin and click exit. Then run bitcoin from the shortcut that you added -server to. Should work then.

Oops, I messed up. That should read "--host=127.0.0.1".

Perhaps you can share your screen via Skype and I can try to figure out what you're doing wrong.
