tell them to break the drawing up into itty-bitty pieces
and work on a real autocad drawing .. :-)
	- separate the item into separate pieces so it can be
	bent, welded, drilled, etc

or get a 3Ghz cpu and load up 4GB or 8GB of memory 

and nope ... beowulf or any other cluster will not help autocad
