Clustering and booting from network?


As I use a below-low-end system (PIII 450/384MB RAM/10and7GB HDD) I would like to tune up a bit. Senseless with those specs. But then my thoughts came to openMosix. I have a working Celeron 400 box next to me. So whats about just putting both toghether using 100BaseT ad building a mini cluster? It wouldn't have much power, but better than not using the Celeron at all?

The problem is, that the Celeron doesn't have a CD, working FDD or Harddisk. I'll have to buy a cheap 5 Euro Ethernetcard but then it's neccessary(spelling?) to have at least a little Harddisk .. or is there a way to get the booting done via the network only?

And if not, can I create a bootdisk (3,5") which does the openMosix job?
