[Beowulf] load-balancing parallel direct solver

Hi all,

I'm playing around with a parallel direct (schur-complement) solver and 
now I'm trying to distribute my finite elements over the different 
processes to obtain a good load-balance (for the local factorization) 
while minimising the interface between the different FE domains (which 
determine the schur complement).

Do any of you have experience with generating a load-balanced 
distribution for direct solvers or can provide me with references to 
papers, I would greatly appreciate it?
