Hello everyone!

I am getting started on a cluster building project at my university. We 
just replaced all of our lab machines so I am going to be using the old 
machines to rebuild our cluster. The intention is for the system to be 
used for scientific computation. I am trying to decide on a linux 
distribution to use. Does it matter all that much? Any advice would be 
greatly appreciated. Book suggestions would help too. I am waiting to 
receive Building Clustered Linux Systems

but my advisor for the project is concerned that it may be out of date 
for what we are doing. Please share your ideas. Thanks!
