The authors report the results of the first computer simulations capable of following the condensation of protostars out of turbulent interstellar gases. These protostars are rotationally supported discs with masses in the range 2 - 20 Msun and diameters from 100 - 4000 AU. In many of the simulations multiple protostellar systems were formed.
