I installed Boinc to run Einstein. It put some files in a directory I keep clean of such files. I want Boinc to work. Can I move them to a folder, such as /usr without having to remove/re-install or otherwise work with this? I would like to create a folder in /usr with the name: boinc and put them there. Will this interfere with normal operations?

You haven't said where you got this version from or which flavor of Linux you are using.

If you installed the T-Bar all in one version then it puts all the files into your home folder. The official versions that come from the Linux repos do not. Most repo versions will put their files in /etc/boinc-client and /var/lib/boinc-client (or /var/lib/boinc).
