ParallelKnoppix

Abstract: ParallelKnoppix is a remaster of the Knoppix live CD distibution of GNU Linux that allows setting up a cluster of machines for parallel processing using the LAM-MPI and/or MPICH implementations of MPI, as well as PVM. You can convert a room full of machines running Windows into a Linux cluster, and when you shut down, your Windows machines are in their original state. The computers in the cluster can be homogeneous or heterogeneous. Getting the cluster up and running takes about 5 minutes, if the machines have PXE network cards. Clusters from 2 to 200 machines are supported. The tutorial explains in detail how to set it up.

Requires: parallelknoppix.iso is a bootable CD image. Burn the image to a CD and use it to boot your master node.
