Been doing it for a while now with Seti at home from Berkley, the UD one mentioned in these posts, and another trying to crack code for RSA Labs. The first two run as screen savers, but the UD and the code cracker also run in the background when the PC is not being utilized.


The links for each are below:

(Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence - support for multiple platforms)

http://www.distributed.net/
(Code cracking. RSA Labs is offering money to whoever cracks the encryption code. Support for multiple platforms)

(More than just the Intel Cancer research. Also helps with genetic research. Sorry, only Windows for now, but I seem to recall seeing something on the site about them working on a Linux version.)
