I am getting started on a cluster building project at my university.
We just replaced all of our lab machines so I am going to be using
the old machines to rebuild our cluster. The intention is for the
system to be used for scientific computation. I am trying to decide
on a linux distribution to use. Does it matter all that much? Any
advice would be greatly appreciated. Book suggestions would help
too. I am waiting to receive <a class="title"
Clustered Linux Systems</a> <span class="ptBrand">by <a
W. Lucke</a> but my advisor for the project is concerned that it
may be out of date for what we are doing. Please share your ideas.
