<div>I use my computer for massive rendering jobs regularily and wish there were ways of giving it more speed. I am strongly considering putting togethor a cluster, but I don't know the basic requirements. I have read several guides on building a cluster, but none of them seem to give the software and connection requirements.
<div>Until I am corrected, I will be under the impression that I can run a cluster with a master node using XP Home and sub-nodes using Windows 98. Do I need to buy a new operating system? What do I need to physically connect the computers. If I can conjure up a few old computers that would barely be worth selling, is it worth building a cluster? How do I physically do all this?
<div>Sorry for being ill informed...</div>
