I tend to install the whole Scyld distribution on systems instead of
trying the piecemeal approach. Failing that, I would say that you
probably want all the RPMS we make available. They are all there for
Use the 'beosetup' tool to move these nodes from 'unknown' into the
cluster. I'm a command-line die hard myself, but I find 'beosetup'
handy and reasonable.
Naturally, you may edit the text files by hand -- but I suggest trying
the GUI tool out to see exactly what changes are affected in the config
files when you add a new node.
