 Diskless Compute Farms

Arstechnica tells us about diskless compute farms.

"In this issue, we show you how to set up a network of inexpensive systems to crunch numbers for a distributed computing project. These days, hardware is cheap, with newer and better hardware being released ever quicker and at continually-dropping prices. The wide availability of inexpensive processors and memory as well as low-cost motherboards that build in everything from display device to LAN interfaces enables some hobbyists to create "farms" meant for a single purpose to process data brought in by distributed computing project clients."
