multiple motherboards with one operating system?


i have heard  multiple operating systems linked together to form a 'supercomputer',but it only still has all the operating systems, so my question is multiple motherboards with one operating system?

Here's a good example of just what you are speaking of.
Exactly -- a render farm, or any other 'cloud' computing cluster does just that -- but it doesnt make for 'one' computer -- each has its own operating system and just crunches numbers for a collective algorhythm. You only interact with one machine really, the rest are just extra cpu brute force.

would the other computer be operational or would it be a slave

Depends on the situation -- you usually operate one computer, which gives instruction sets to the other slave computers.

A mainboard and it's bits form a machine. You can link several machines  together (Re-Design) but to build a single machine with multiple processors, you really need to have hardware which is designed for it.
