Network and processors

I just wanted to know if anyone could give me links, or point me in the right direction on how to set up a network so that one computer can share the processing speed of all the others connected. Any info (websites etc) would be greatly appreciated. I am completely clueless on this topic…I don’t even know if it’s possible. Again, any resources about this topic…please let me know!!!

Thanks for looking at my newbie post.

There are ways to execute a program on multiple CPU's, but it must be programmed in such a way that enables it to do so. So you will not just be able to speed up all of your regular applications, by spreading the work out amongst several processors. If you already knew this and are looking for a platform that supports "clustering" you could check up on mosix or beowulf clusters.

hope this helps,
