How does Wake-On-Lan work? Will it work w/ older NIC cards? Is there a way to automate it?

If not, Is there a way to automate the shutting down and booting of 6 computers once one boots(something in the startup scripts maybe)? I've got a cluster of 6 old machines that I want to use as a workstation, but I can't leave them running 24-7. I also don't want to have to boot 6 machines every time I want to use the computer(that is, I don't want to go through the process). Is there any way to automate something like this?
