[Beowulf] Entry Level HPC?

The absolute most important point in the world -- you have it.  Many Beowulf
Clusters were started with either equipment that was on hand, or in more
times then not had been discarded as being to old and/or slow.

Thanks to all for the great advice and encouragement!
I'm sure I'll be back with questions as I cobble together a small, slow
cluster here. Wth, my first Linux box was a 386 with 16MB RAM and a 500MB
hard drive. ;)

First question: Any point in trying to use the Everex gPC with the Via C-7
cpu (my current desktop) as the master node?
