I help maintain a Web site called www.clusterbuilder.org.  We have a
question and answer section to help those involved in clustering.  We are
developing a knowledgebase of cluster questions and responses so people with
similar problems might be able to find answers to their question.

I received a question concerning a beowulf cluster configuration and wanted
to see what the opinions are of everyone here.

"I built our Beowulf cluster from 10 PC(pentium4 2.2) but I do not know
whether I can build such a cluster from some old computers which have 2 or 4
processors integrated (multiprocessors). The problem is, instead of using an
Ethernet card, I want to use another communication card for better
performance. What is the best solution?"

Any response is greatly appreciated.
