All you need for the minimum beowulf is 2 old NIC's, 50 pages of paper, 1
pencil, a cross-utp cable.

Put a NIC in each machine and connect them with the cross-utp cable.
Now your beowulf is ready.

Within 10 minutes your your own beowulf!

Oh nearly forgot, the piece of paper and a pencil are to write down  
your findings in an official report, the coming month.

how to build a small Beowulf cluster 

Good Morning, 

I have several old computers in good shape, and wants to cluster them
together to build a Beowulf, can you give me some guidance on the step
involved? Thanks.
