OK, it would require user intervention at closing time, but what about a
Linux load on a bootable CD. Something along the lines of DemoLinux with all
the fluff (like X, Slovakian Man-page support, etc.) stripped and your apps
added? Could it be done within the constraints of 700Mb CD?
Again, pardon my ignorance here. I'm interested to see where this goes as we
are in need of cycles and in a similar situation as Todd.

Unfortunately, the application is nothing like a SETI situation where nodes
can work independantly. The communications required are low, but they are
needed and the nodes must work together.
