[Beowulf] Resources for starting a Beowulf Cluster (NFS Setup?)

Hello all,

I am new to Linux and need help with the setup of my Beowulf Cluster.  Can
anyone suggest a few good resources?

Here is a description of my current hurdle: I have 1 master node and 2 slave
nodes.  For starters, I would like to be able to create a user account on
the master node and have it appear on the slave nodes.  I've figured out
that the first step is to copy over several files as follows:

/etc/group
/etc/passwd
/etc/shadow

And this lets me now log into any node with a given password, but the home
directory of that given user does not carry over.

All comments welcome!

Thanks!
A Lenzo

PS - I am using Fedora Core 6.
