    Funny you should mention the Beowulf cluster...I just found out today my University is building an advanced CS Lab, which will be bound together with Beowulf. :oes the happy dance:: Finally, we'll even have Linux boxes in the labs! WOOOOOT!!

    ::Grins:: I may still be first year, but even I can appreciate that. :-)

    check out http://www.beowulf.org. It's basically in very layman terms a bunch of computers set-up to act like one computer with multiple processors..

    from the beowulf faq:

    1. What's a Beowulf? [1999-05-13]

    It's a kind of high-performance massively parallel computer built
    primarily out of commodity hardware components, running a free-software
    operating system like Linux or FreeBSD, interconnected by a private
    high-speed network. It consists of a cluster of PCs or workstations
    dedicated to running high-performance computing tasks. The nodes in
    the cluster don't sit on people's desks; they are dedicated to running
    cluster jobs. It is usually connected to the outside world through
    only a single node.

    Some Linux clusters are built for reliability instead of speed. These
    are not Beowulfs.

    I've noticed your in Canada.. You may want to check out SharcNet. It's very cool.. However the site seems to be down at the moment... You can however check out my college's, Fanshawe College, sharcnet page @ http://infotech.fanshawec.on.ca/SHARCNET/

    Peace

    Very very good. The only thing that I would have done differently would be to tell N00bs to select menu install instead of expert. This way, they wont miss any dependencies and required packages (because the required ones have * next to them).

    Overall, *very* nice work.

    Hehe, wheres the fun in that horsey? For the most part I think saying "Leave the libraries and so on alone" Should take care of most of that. Thanks everyone for the great replies, I appreciate it.

    Maybe next I'll do one for Libranet

    Thanks. I'll see about that Libranet one sooner than I intended and see if I can get it done in a while. Don't wanna post whore tutorials forum though.

    Did you all like this step by step walk through? For Libranet I can do it again if you'd like.

    Worked well for me.

    I saw your review of Libranet in one of the other forums and after googling on it for a while I gave it a try. Doesn't have a GUI install, but who cares, it's still a good distro?!

    It'd be nice to have a tutorial for reference though. Point the new converts in that direction...

    cd
    cd /local
    mkdir nvidia_drivers
    cd nvidia_drivers
    ftp
    open download.nvidia.com
    binary
    //Note: Windows system
    CD XFree86
    CD Linux-x86
    CD 1.0-4496
    mget NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-4496-pkg1.run
    //OR
    mget NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-4496-pkg2.run
    bye
    sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-4496-pkg1.run
    //OR
    sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-4496-pkg2.run

    For those of you with nvidia drivers.

    NVIDIA has a unified driver architecture model; this means that one driver
    set can be used with all supported NVIDIA graphics chips. Please see
    Appendix A for a list of the NVIDIA graphics chips supported by the
    current drivers.

    Driver release 1.0-4349 introduced a new packaging
    and installation mechanism, which greatly simplifies the
    installation process. There is only a single file to download:
    NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-1.0-4496-pkg1.run. This contains
    everything previously contained by the old NVIDIA_kernel and NVIDIA_GLX
    packages.

    Driver release 1.0-4496 introduces a package suffix ("-pkg#") to
    the .run file. This is used to distinguish between packages containing
    the same driver, but with different precompiled kernel interfaces.
    If there is any confusion, just download the .run file with the largest
    pkg number.
    -Cheers-
