Not exactly a newbie topic.....
I suspect that clustering is more about how the kernel is configured---its not really a distro issue.

For this one, I'm betting that Google will get you more answers and faster.

you need the OpenMosix kernel. OpenMosix allows you to configure your network to work as a cluster. It also includes software and protocol information for monitoring the cluster. I personally have not yet done this i have just done a lot of reading on the subject.
