    I don't want a sales pitch or anything about why linux is teh l337 OS. Only the facts. If you know something or know of a site that has some good info for people that have never messed with clusters before hook me up. This is for my parallel programming course, I am interested in setting up a cluster at home for homework (obviously not a big one, just a few machines).

    Ack, I know there's a purpose-made distribution for clustering... Install the OS on the machines, network them, and they automatically find themselves, load-balance, everything is done for you.... I saw it on slashdot a few months ago, but I can't for the life of me remember what it was called,

    That would be sweet, thanks for the tip. If you find it post it up, I will hit slashdot and have a look as well.

    B- if you really want to know what clusters are doa search for beowulf and read the initial white papers.
