clustering + Openmosix

hello everyone, i do large jobs that need alot of CPU power like video editing and stuff (yes all within linux :P)

and i heard about openmosix and how it can cluster PCs together and compute 1 or more jobs, which is amazing.. i thought there wasnt such thing for free lol but anyways.. i was on gentoo's site and they have a section on setting up a cluster ""

now i was trying to read up on this and i seem have a hard time gasping it, but this howto is just showing me how to setup a node ? how are the computers going to know where these nodes are and to send the process information back and forth.. ? is there another thing i have to do to make the pc's (the ones who issue the jobs) to see these nodes, to use there CPU ?

If anyone can help me out that would be just great

Thank you in advance.

I just read through that page, seems that the newer versions have auto-discovery build-in so they are supposed find each other. a server piece was mentioned but nothing on how to set it up. try some fo the links on this page "" or do some google searches. sorry i'm not of more help....
