Im a very Newbee so forgive my stupidity..
I have the problem 'Problem Communicating with Bitcoin RPC 02 12 22'
when i try to start mining using GUIMiner v2011-08-24, Bitcoin0.3.21, BTCGuild, Windows XP 32 bit and ATI Stream v 2.3 32bit.
From reading all the posts on the problem i have, it appears i need to update my Bitcoin.conf. and either add my 'usr name' and 'pwd' and the 'IP address' of BTCGuild, or allow the Bitcoin.conf file to access and use BTCGuild....I think im right....Perhaps you could confirm these 2 ideas.
My problem is i cant find Bitcoin.conf and dont know how or if i need to create it.

1. Do not run 0.3.21. Please upgrade to 0.3.24 or you are hurting the network.
2. You do not need to enable RPC on bitcoin/bitcoind at all to mine in a pool such as BTCGuild. You only need to setup RPC for solo mining. Just run the miner with the username and password of a worker you create at BTCGuild. Just run bitcoin without RPC, let it download blocks and generate addresses. Then copy and paste one of the addresses from Bitcoin to set your btcguild account payout address.
