I've already recieved requests, but I should say that there is much more to 
the cluster than the boot floppies.  The boot floppies only contain the 
kernel.  Each node contains (almost) everything that a base Redhat 7.2 
install contains, so they mount / from NFS, copy /etc and /var to RAM disk, 
and mount /dev with the devfs patch.  You would need much more than just the 
boot floppies to get this to work.

MSN Photos is the easiest way to share and print your photos:
