Hi,

First of all, i'm a linux newbie, and need someone to answer some questions for me. First, can anyone tell me what a beowulf cluster is? is it like high performance computing or something else? Also does anyone know what the mandrake clic clustering software is? I know what it is, but can b beowulf do that? I need help!!!!

Both are high performance clustering software packages.

What software do you want to run with the cluster?

It isn't that you install some software and now 5 computers act as one ... instead, you must write your software specifically to use a cluster (or get software written to use a cluster).

Beowulf Clusters

Here is the beowulf FAQ.

Here is more cluster information from Cluster Rants.
--------------------
Here is info about Mandrake CLIC ... you can download the ISO from here to set up the systems.

Again ... your software must be written to use this technology as well.
