I investigated this a while ago. It turns out that gentoo isn't really geared 
towards cluster use, but once you've customized it it can be pretty easy to 
use a system replication tool.

I guess gentoo could benefit from a standardized HPC clustering solution, 
including parallel system libraries and tools.
