I'm looking at doing some beowulf demos to try and get the attenetion
our university engineering department.  There isn't any program they
currently run that there isn't a Linux replacement for.  Either free,
less expensive, same or more expensive. ;-)  I am hoping that this will
eventually lead to a Linux based NOW system.

The idea is to 'harvest' unused clock cycles at work stations.
