Sounds like you don't need a Beowulf cluster, but what I call a distributed compute farm or what the marketing buzz calls Utility Grid Computing. You can install 1 of many job execution environments such as Condor, Platform, SGE, United Devices Grid MP, etc. etc. to manage your CPU/memory/disk resources.  For filesystem management, you could use something like Gfarm or one of the many other Grid/cluster filesystems to setup a global shared filesystem.
Good Luck to you.

Subject: [Beowulf] Create cluster : questions


i'm a user of the Ubuntu Linux OS, and also a packager for this OS.
As you may know , packaging can be take a lot of time, mainly during building process.
I would create a public cluster for help packagers. All Ubuntu users can accept we use their computers on the cluster. But the cluster system MUST only use free ressource of this computers (and maybe user could set a quota)... 

i want people only have to install some software (no kernel compilation or other things).

I want know if beowulf could works in this case ????

I'm sorry for my (very) bad english, i'm french :)
