We have just taken deliver of a windows cluster.

Master node connected to network and 8 64bit Xeon nodes on private cluster
network.

While the system will be used to develop and run parallel programs,
Fluent...., one of the primary reasons for setting up the system is to
assist academics with low power systems on their desktop to run pacakages
such as Matlab, Mathematica, SAS ...

In Linux clsuters the appliactions are held in one area. Does each node of a
windows cluster need to have a copy of each application?

How doe users access each node - terminal services?

Would be interested in access to a 'dummies' guide to establishing a windows
cluster
