Bulding a cluster
I am interested in building a small cluster. At this lab I work for, we have a bunch of Pentium IV 1GB RAM computers we no longer use. To retain them from uselessness, we are thinking of the possibility of building a small cluster. I have read a few guides, but most are over 10 years old.
My question is: is there any up to date guide that is not completely technical? I have read about master and slave nodes. Is there any way to connect a few (four or five) of our computers to this cluster?
Thanks in advance.

I've built farms in the past when I was involved in the Seti @ Home project. There are loads of info from those folks setiathome.ssl.berkeley.edu . If you go to some of the user website they have the most info. At least they did. Not done S@H in many years.
Generally, with PCs that old, one new PC will do more and faster, using less energy.
