I have a cluster (hydra) that has bee in service since 2000. It is a 
32p, 16node PIII 633mhz cluster with all original nodes. 

While I doubt that it is the oldest that you will find, it has been in 
continuous use serving the needs of chemists, physicists, and grad 
students for over 4.5 years.

On the other hand, I have an Origin 2000 250mhz that been in continuous 
use since 1997.
