compiling on multiple computers


I am looking for a way to compile linux programs on multiple computers, so i can use those computers processor time to speed up the compiling...
The other pc's are running on Windows....

I have looked on internet but i dont know really what to look for
i know it is possible to use xx different pc's to compile cuz i have read it somewhere, but i cant find it anymore

is there someone that knows how to do so or has tutorials on how to do so?

That is interesting. But how many machines and what processor size is needed to see a benefit.

Would a couple of P1 and P2 actually help.?

Anyone ever run this?
