Yes, the unique ID assigned on first connection is not connected to your IP address.

Perhaps in the case of such a dual-boot machine it might indeed be desirable to "clone" the Folding@Home configuration between the two OS-installations, so that when switching between the two, the checkpointing mechanism can facilitate continued work on the same WU (with minimal loss of work already performed)?

Would this be possible, and -- if so -- how?

Thanks in advance,

Actually, no it would not be desirable. You would not be able to continue on the checkpointed WU on a a different OS You can always set work to Finish before switching.

FAH will treat your dual-boot computer as two distinct computers, one of which is turned off. WUs assigned to either one must eventually be completed by that same computer within the deadlines that were assigned when the WU was downloaded.
