Linux Clustering


Hey. I registered to this forum because there appears to be a ton of people who could possibly have my answer. I'm a composer and basicly I want a ton of processing power. I also do graphics design both with 2d and 3d environments. I like linux a lot, esecially its networking capabilities but unfortunately, it lacks the software support I need for the applications I want to use. To get this extra processing, I'm wanting to set up a diskless linux cluster, course that being a master computer with a drive that all the nodes boot from. On top of linux, I want to install VMWare or somethign similar where I can then install Windows XP over the top (yes yes, flame me for needing to use Windows to compose and make a living lol). What my question is, will VMWare make it appear to XP that I'm on a single very fast or atleast a several processor machine or will I be restricted to the master computers processing capabilities? I'd like to know before I go out and waste my money . Currently, I'm looking at both AMD and Intel solutions. The P4 2.4GHz at $170 would do nicely. However it works out, it needs to be semi-cheap (less than $4000) and around 10GHz-15GHz. Thank you very much for any help you can provide .

Cheers,
Zac

I'm not an expert but unless VMware is written to take advantage of clustering then its not going to multi process. I am sure that linux can do what you want with out having to run Virtual software. You should check out the software fourm or search for some threads on this. I know that there is some developers on here that can help.

When I understand you right, you want to export single processes to other nodes, isnt it?

I would try for simple rendering openMosix. You can use vmware if want to run mulitple Linux-instances on one Hardwarenode.
Teach me if I am wrong.
