I looked up Beowolf, it seems it would be nice on a fast network (Multiple
ppros and 100 megabit ethernet)...

But lets face it, that is too expensive; for most. I am admining six
linux boes (the most powerful a 486 dx50 with 16 megs of ram) on a 10
megabit ethernet serving 300+ computers an 1,000 + users

Beowolf is what we need to help our average load of 2.0+ to become around
1.4 atleast...

Is there a port for not so powerful server == what will the load be if
installed on my lil' network? and where can I find dipc?
