Inexpensive beowulf but not so miniature Beowulf

I've already recieved requests, but I should say that there is much more to 
the cluster than the boot floppies.  The boot floppies only contain the 
kernel.  Each node contains (almost) everything that a base Redhat 7.2 
install contains, so they mount / from NFS, copy /etc and /var to RAM disk, 
and mount /dev with the devfs patch.  You would need much more than just the 
boot floppies to get this to work.
