Well I've got BOINC up and running now. For newbies like me wondering how, here's the steps:
1) Go to BOINC download page. Right click Linux release and click "Save Link As". When finished, click Save. Close window. (Note: adjusting following file name based on version as needed)
2) Double click XTerminal.
3) Type the following lines, enter after each line (noting different filename if version different):
mv boinc_5.2.7_i686-pc-linux-gnu.sh /opt/
chmod +x boinc_5.2.7_i686-pc-linux-gnu.sh
...and now the BOINC manager should come up and you'll know where you're at.
This has got to be the way to go on older machines being used as a BOINC farm... good luck...
