John The Ripper

Hi everyone.

Im facing a bit of a problem with john the ripper. Im to crack a Linux passwords. Im using an incremental attack but as im told it would take me 7 days non stop to crack the password. so Im going to distribute the work on 3 computers, meaning one would start from 2 to 5 characters, second from 6 to 8 and third from 9 to 10(max 10 characters) characters. Does anybody know how to configure the john the ripper to do so? Ive read the tutorials but to tell u the truth, i didnt understand much. :P
Appreciate any help
