If you're running linux, there is a useful utility called pvm (parallel
virtual machine) which will allow distribution of a process over several
hosts. NFS is probably the easiest way around needing to have every file
on every machine. It is available at Sunsite as pvm-3.3.5.tar.gz in
/pub/Linux/system/Network/distrib/ (I think). Hope this helps.
