Oh, I'm sure I could wade in here too..  two clusters, one 85 nodes
(Myricom 2k), another close to 400nodes.

And what we do, diskless just won't work.

We can take out almost any NFS server in a matter of minutes.

Oh, and don't ask what application..  We support over 18 different
areas, and the apps are just insane at times.  :)
