clusterknoppix, definitely. its a live cd also, so you dont have to install to hard disk, although installing is an option.

there's another one i saw based on morphix, check the morphix website. it had xfce as its primary desktop

there's an ISO image on the clusterknoppix website. just download the ISO, burn the image to a cd (google search for a how-to) and pop the cd in the machine, reboot and you're good to go.

i had a 3 node setup, all running clusterknoppix. i only used 1 cd and did a hard drive install, but the cd is good for machines without a HD.

Also what nobody even asked is why are you clustering. Unless your application is multi threaded then its only going to use your primary nodes CPU power. I just thought that I'd ask. I'd like to cluster some Xboxes that I have, but I'd have no use for them when I got done. Cuause I have no programs that work on clusters.
