BOINC question

view story

http://forums.opensuse.org – Hello to all.. I am very new to Linux so please pardon some of the questions that I may pose. I am running openSUSU 11.1, I have installed the BOINC application from the DVD. Here is my problem: When I click on the BOINC icon it starts and nothing happens, if I want to run BOINC I have to open a terminal window and type boinc, it will then run. If I close or quit the terminal window BOINC stops working. Is it possible to run boinc with out having a terminal window open? If so then how? Thanks (Distributions)
