I am getting ready to purchase @ 8 Computers from work. The machines are 166MMX with a hard drive and 64megs of ram. I am wondering if I will be able to run all of these on a network with these as nodes and just have one machine with the Monitor, keyboard and stuff? I am trying to do this on the cheap. I am running SETI@Home and was thinking about setting up these machines to do this if possible.
I have been reading about people setting up beowulf style clusters with older machines just to see if this can be done. Can you run SETI on a cluster? What types of programs are available to run on clusters?

Thanks for you help,
