At our university we've got 5-10 old (g4) powermacs floating around  
the department that were talking about organizing as a cluster for  
pedagogical work in computational physics.  Apple's Xgrid utility  
seems like and interesting utility to use for the job - I'm curious  
if anyone on the list has experience with this scheduler.    
Specifically, is it easy to link against?  Is the MPI layer standard  
(my previous experience is mostly with IBM machines)
