I'd like to see a discussion of Beowulf version 2. We're going to press
now with the distribution CD for Beowulf v.2 with BProc -- and from the
administrator's perspective it renders obsolete a lot of the traditional
(and tedious) Beowulf management tasks.

The downside (from an author's perspective) may be that the book suddenly
becomes harder to fill out...

If you would like to get an advance copy of our "Preview" distribution,
I'll try to arrange this.
