YiTing Liu,

Here's an initial step-by-step setup of a cluster and it even tells you how
to test it.

http://www.xtreme-machines.com/x-cluster-qs.html

It seems to cover everything.  PVM/MPI, security and network performance.
It will also point you to where all the software is.

Hope this helps.

Hi, All,

  I am new to this mailing list.
  Also it's my first time to build "small" cluster alone for school's
project.
  Only 2 linux machines , one is master and the other is the node.
  Their CPU - P4 1.76Hz, 80GB in HD, 1GB memory.
  One has SMC EZ NIC card, the other has Intel Pro 10/100 NIC Card.

  I surfed lots web sites, including www.beowulf-underground.org and
  www.xtreme-machines.com.
  BUT, I still have no idea how/where to start!!

  Can some one point a way for me?
  I'll be appreciated!!

  Thank you very much.

Ting
