This is the preferred solution to ProofPower=5. Obviously replace ./largetmp with /nfs/whatever
Just so you know what is happening:
ProofPower=5 means someone will have to do 3% of a full PRP test to doublecheck your result.
ProofPower=8 means someone will have to do 0.4% of a full PRP test to doublecheck your result.
ProofPower=5 requires 450MB disk space
ProofPower=8 requires 3.2GB disk space
I think this is covered in readme.txt  if unclear, please suggest how we can make it clearer.
BTW, an LL test requires someone to do 100% of a full LL test to doublecheck your result. This makes it pretty clear why GIMPS chose to go with the more resource intensive PRP with proofs route.
One last caveat to my ProofPower=5 storage calculations. The temp file will require 32*14MB=448MB, but I fear that for a brief time during proof generation another 6*14MB=84MB might be required.
