I'd like to see a DSL clustering system, but there's security issues. I've got some ideas for increasing security, but I'm not a C/C++ hacker.
With security hacks added, one could run a SETI-type project. I wouldn't do it without security hacks added.
If you have total physical control of your network, you can ignore many of the security issues by trusting your physical control of the network. (Can you see every millimeter of your twisted pair cable and guarantee restricted access to every box?)
For that situation and that only, start a remaster of DSL.
Replace the kernel from DSL with a clustering kernel. (i.e. replace the "../KNOPPIX/KNOPPIX" file with one from clusterKnoppix, openMossix, etc.) Make sure you are using the exact same kernel number.
Add the cluster management tools, configure everything and finish remastering.
Personally, even if I thought I could see every nanometer of twisted pair and thought I had absolute control of the physical boxes, I'd probably still want to have security hacks controling the addition of boxes and launching of applications.
