test cluster(2 computers hocked up byt a cross-over cable).  I installed the
Master node no problem and I got it to run(I must say I am VERY impressed by
the tools that come with).  Now I try and boot the node from the CD-Rom and
it detects my PCI Network card no problem, I get
"............................." all over my screen for about 5 - 10 minutes
and then it gives me an error.  The error comes on my screen so fast I can't
write it down.  The error has something to do with PCI devices and a bucn of
numbers.  I don't realy know how the RARP works so I can't realy say what is
the matter.  I can see the node in the BeoSetup and I put it in the
"Configured Nodes" section of it while the node is still doing the
".............." thing.

So far, so good.  Once you have the node in the 'Configured Nodes' list,
you need to hit the 'Apply' button on the top left of the window.  Once
you do that, the slave node should continue to boot.  Also, make sure
you're running beosetup as root and not a normal user.


The node is already in the "Configured Nodes" and I already hit the "Apply".
I am running BeoSetup as root.  What I get in the "Configured Nodes" for the
node under the "state" is 'master down' and my good friends the
"............................" all over the screen of the node.
