Hi,I am planning on installing a 32 node beowulf cluster for high
performance bio-informatics applications. As a OS I was planning on
installing Red Hat Linux 9.0.But I had heard from somebody that SuSe Linux
has advantage in parallel computations. Having no hands-on experience in
SuSe Linux, I have no idea how to verify this or do a comparision. What do
you advice as the OS for the cluster? And how to determine this,as there
are a bunch of unix OSes out there.Thanks.
