Anyone want to explain this in a little detail as in how. I have enough componets to put 3-4 more systems in folding but I would have to do it this way. Most are 1000-1700mhz range so it couldn't hurt.
hmmm, boot from network, 'n on the network you have one computer that acts as a server, loading linux into their ram and giving them the wu's, check eoc for more info(they have a walk through)
I'd give ya more info but I'm just breakin from a cram session

as i understand it
you have one master system
(doesnt havae to be a good system)
and the "nodes" boot from the network ( from the master node) and load the os that its going to use into a ram disk
since the entire os has to be loaded into ram the os has to be small thats why you seem almost all linux os's
