Setting up a miner is not user friendly using command lines.
I'd rather plugnplay like setting up most other applications

I've got Windows XP and Quad 2.40GhZ processor with NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GT card

I could contribute towards mining pool because I leave miner running 24/7

please help

cheers

For an easy to use (well as easy as it gets for now) mining setup look up "poclbm-gui" here on the forum. Tell you what since I know that most people loathe being told to "google it" or "search for it" I'll do you a favor and give you the direct link to the thread where you can download poclbm-gui:

enjoy!

Yep no problem. There are additional setup steps you need to take in order to configure it for use with one of the popular mining pools but instructions are available on each pool's respective website.

Good luck, and welcome to the bitcoin mining club! Smiley

I'm having trouble connecting to Bitcoinpool.

Do I need to configure the 'bitcoin.conf' file? Where is this file?

Do I need the Bitcoin client running too?

No you do not need a bitcoin client running to mine. You DO need it running to receive your payments from bitcoinpool.

For help with setting your miner with that particular mining pool please see their website and/or support forum.

To mine in a pool you do NOT need to touch the bitcoin.conf file (in fact by default it does not exist unless you create it and those who create it intend to mine solo - which in your case you clearly are not going to do that so therefore you should not touch/create that file)

Hope this helps.
