Question Clustering n00b

I just recieved some motherboards off some people and wanted to start a cluster using linux... I have around 3 atm but might be able to get others from somewhere
Where should i start to start learning about clusteing with linux? What sort of stuff can i 'crunch' on a cluster?

Cheers for any help

ClusterKnoppix is supposed to be easy to set up...just pop in a CD to set up a hub, and as you add new nodes, they are recognized automagically. It uses OpenMosix.

Linux Central has a Scyld CD for sale for only a few bucks. It's an excellent start for anyone starting in beowulf.
