What, you want spoon feeding? A step-by-step tutorial? Sheesh.
If you have opencl working with your GPU driver, it should be as simple as installing the boinc-client-opencl metapackage.

What have you tried to get this working, what drivers do you have installed, and what error messages do you get from BOINC?
