Exclamation RH Beowulf Cluster and SETI


Does anybody have experience assembling a Beowulf cluster? What are the main steps or features re: hardware and software?
Is this in the realm of possibility?

I want to find a way to make a jump in my WU's. I have 6000+, have completed more units than 99.4%, but I still have 25,00O people ahead of me. Success is relative!!

SETI@home isn't written to take advantage of multiple processors. You wouldn't be able to compute a single workunit on a cluster of boxen. You could run it on each individual box and get the same number of results per day as if it were a cluster.
