So my questions are (relative to this), which product would be used for
the compute nodes on a cluster?  

Redhat has:
	RHEL WS at ~$792 from web store
SUSE has:
	SLES 2 CPU license at ~$767 from their web store
	SL Pro 9.0 for AMD64 at  ~$120    

I assume the $700++ items have the NUMA patches.  Does the SL Pro

Of course there are other distributions one could use.  Commercially
Scyld, CLIC, and a few others are out or coming out such as Callident . 
Non-commercial you have ROCKS, cAos (soon), White-Box, Debian, OSCAR +
[RH | Mandrake], biobrew, Gentoo, and probably a few others.

Who is going to support the x86_64 platforms?  RH and SUSE are obvious,
but I think that cAos, ROCKS, CLIC, Gentoo, et al may/will support
x86_64.  Has anyone compiled a list yet?
