How to build a computer cluster? Answered

Does anyone know a good way to connect some computers together to form a computer cluster that I can use as a single computer. My goal is to add on to it to increase the speed/capacity of the unit.

If you can get your hands on some macs try using Pooch from Dauger Reseach.

"Beowulf clustering" is the name given to a special versions of linux that can be used on multiple machines to form parallel processing clusters.

Ideally, you want to run the cluster on identical commodity hardware - I've been trying to get the school I volunteer in to build one from 10 Dells that were due to get passed on

No, Windows machines don't "cluster" in the way you can with Beowulf.

Ok, but what is Beowulf, and if I did use it, what should I do then?
