Cluster Computing -- complete n00b -- where/how to start ?


Hi,

I am a student of Computer Science, and I have given up my name for a project in Cluster computing.
The project starts in about one month's time.

All I know about the project right now is that we will be using Linux as the OS, first we'll try to make a cluster of normal desktop P.C.'s and then we'll try it on some Xenon multiprocessor systems (pardon me if I am wrong with that name, I only know this much)

Now, I am a complete n00b when it comes to cluster computing, though I have knowledge of Linux in general, I've been using it for about two years now.

What all should I do in preperation for this project ?
I googled and got some good references, but I would really appreciate it if the Gurus out here could help me and point me in the right direction. Any suggestions, as in Which OS to use ?, some good reference sites, good reference books, or rather any good reference material would do me a lot of good.

Till now I have just googled for this topic, read some references there and read This reference of cluster computing in the Wikipedia

Do remember I a n00b in Cluster Computing.
Any suggestions and help is welcome.

Thanks in anticipation.

Download one of the following clustering toolkits from

OR

Rocks clustering toolkit is comparatively easy to install and configure.

Hi GAA,

Thanks for the reply. I am currently downloading those two toolkits.
Due to insufficient funds my project is taking sometime to start.

Thanks again
