Making a cluster with RedHat and MOSIX
Ive been thinking of setting up a cluster computer. Using 4 or so Machines connected via Ethernet. All running RedHat and MOSIX (Multi-computer Operating System for unIX) Any one ever do something like this? Can I run programs normally from the main console and it will use the processing power of all the machines? Is clustering machines considered obsolete?

other will know more.. in the mean time.. direct your Googles at "BeoWulf Cluster"

Ive herd with a BeoWulf cluster you have to do alot of C\C++ scripting for it. I've come to understand that Mozix is just like a kernel patch of sorts. Ive herd that ClusterKNOPPIX is also good clustering software because if uses Mozix aswell as auto-discovery tools for making the process of adding more nodes much simpler. I'm pretty sure I read that it uses A live CD esk distro aproch for the nodes.... I could be horribly wrong on this one but its worth looking into. Hope that helps a little.
