Preferred address? The address for the cluster gets automatically set
by the beowulf subsystem. Check out '/etc/beowulf/config' for details
about the beowulf cluster interface.

Side note: If you want to build a Scyld Beowulf cluster and your frontend
has only one NIC (say eth0), you should use a device alias (say eth0:0)
as your cluster interface.

If nodes aren't showing up, you may not be running the beowulf services or
you may have a network connectivity problem. The nodes should show up
as unknown as soon as they start RARPing from the floppy/CD.

Good luck!
