You will waste more power than you will ever generate in BTC.  Even GPUs are practically worthless for mining and can hardly pay their own power bill, not to mention all the heat they generate.  You can get an idea of what your expected hash rate will be here: https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Mining_hardware_comparison#CPUs.2FAPUs  It also lists the miner software used and the settings they had for the most part.  You can try some of those miners if they are even still maintained.  ~15 MHash/s for a decent CPU is not worth the effort it takes to get everything installed and running, but if you have nothing but free time and just want to see how it works, go for it.

If you have a new generation CPU like Intel core i7, you can try scrypt mining on Alt-Coins. I have tried mining on i7 in past and I was getting around 50 khash/sec, so don't extpect huge profits, but you will at least learn basics of mining and can move forward.

For CPU mining, use Pooler's CPU miner (google it or search this forum).

50 khash on i7, that's weird. I had 20 mhash on my mac air (i5). Maybe you meant mhash?

You are talking 20 Mhashes with SHA256 mining, while 50 Khashes refers to SCRYPT mining.

That's correct. 50 khash/sec on SCRYPT mining.

I did that. The price of some of the coins mined rose, and got worth quite a lot.

To OP, use this: http://sourceforge.net/projects/cpuminer/

CPU miner is good for CPU mining Smiley
OP could play with it and have fun, but please beware that it will not be profitable at all.

Whether it will be profitable or not depends on how teh prices of the coins you mine rise or fall. For example you could be mining some new coin which does not seem to be profitable. But you keep collecting them; then some day the coin appears on Cryptsy and other exchanges and the value skyrockets.
