Please be aware that these are just four machines in one chassis, its 
not a cluster of four machines.  They are completely unrelated to each 
other, there is neither a common power distribution nor a network switch 
nor any kind of common control.  There is also no backplane or such, so 
to service the leftmost board you most often need to displace the other 
three first (to rip out the ATX power cord).
