I am trying to put together a small cluster for folding, and I have a few questions.
1. Which does more work, a dual processor system or two single processor systems ( All else being equal memory, storage etc.)
2. What is the best and easiest way to bind the cluster together under win2000 or Linux?

sory keddo, don't know nothing about cluster, i would think a dual and single be the same though, I could be wrong. But it's more efficient with a dual because you have more space to add more boxes later :D.

As I understand it Folding is not set up to take advantage of this type of environment. If you happen to be setting one up for another reason then you could setup a folding instance for each proc you have though. Take a look at the FAQ thread. It should help.
