Have attached to E@H but I am unable to get work.

Message I get is that there is work but that my computer does not have enough memory.

Just how much memory do I need to run E@H?

Have been able to run Sztaki and LHC without problems.

Is there some sort of change I can make to my settings to get work?

How much memory needed

I think the current WUs are set to require 70MB of memory. The next analysis we are currently preparing will probably require less.

I've just modified the message that you get so that it indicates how much more memory you need.

Most projects need 64M after

Most projects need 64M after the OS is installed. So if you can up the RAM to 80M, 96M, or even better 128M, then you may participate.
