Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

1) Install any Distributed/Cluster computer using several pcs
2) Install a vertual machine on the distributed OS
3) Install othr OS on the VM
4) run the singale program [ eg:- blender animation rendering] in the distributed environment?
Anything is possible, why not set up some environment and try it out yourself? That's what I do all the time here, why do you think I've got an average of 10 PC's around...
What's the goal here anyway? Why use something like Blender in such an environment? A renderfarm?
i am using using squid server with authentiaction but one of my department have to run remote desktop in windows which is not in our local network i am using 172.31.... but remote desktop range are 28.... how it is possible
Can a Mod move the rogue post to it's own question?
There are two or more basic ways a cluster can work. One is that a large program has work. That work is cut into small chunks and each node works on a small bit at a time. The other way is to use like craylink did and basically make a large single computer.
You can't use craylink or other ways to use systems so you have to rely on things like openmpi or such. Blender is a software app that is not mpi aware that I know of.
Not so much the os but a framework to get a distributed client/host cluster built.
Take a look at Rocks cluster first.
The applications for clusters tend to be very odd ones. Some are commercial and they are not advertised as they are one of a kind. One example is a system that reads packages at shipping companies. I think Lockheed makes it or maybe part of the camera companies software. I'd guess that all of the high end simulation does cluster. Everything from car crash testing to cancer models and nuclear models are all done on some pretty massive clusters. There are some open distributed ones that have cracked cypher and work on dna that almost anyone can join in on. I think I said this before, I think it was pixel or some animation company that did a lot of cluster work to assist simply for shading using a bunch of origin computers.
Cray computers and maybe a few others still offer a high end system.
There was a post about a guy who took something like 128 Pi arm boards and built a cluster.
Sun (oracle) still sells a way to distribute work over almost any mesh of systems.
All of that has almost nothing to do with normal workstation or desktop tasks.
