Thank you for the response, a cluster of sparcs on linux instead of
solaris seems to be pretty rare, thanks for the links!

Hi Joe,

There use to be a Beowulf cluster of Ultra5's running at the University 
of Buffalo that was setup to dual boot between Linux and Solaris. I 
don't know if it's still in existence, this was back around 1999/2000 
but I'm sure there is someone at UB who can provide you with some 
information. I was interested in Beowulf but SGE filled my needs better 
so I never went forward with it.

Here are a few links to check out.
