Does someone have a step by step for this? I have 5 486's with 4 megs of

building a Beowulf cluster, these seemd like a good place to start).

But.. the documentation is a little lite for these kind of installations :(

Can someone point me to a step-by-step website success story or post to the

If it will cost you a harddisk, it is cheaper to install aditional memory.
I did this with my 386, expanded the memory to 11Mb, and I feel it worth
the trouble because muLinux is working fine. I use it every day to print my
documents trough samba.

  Hi.. when I try and install I get all the way through to the installation
of the USR segment,and it looks like its just paging(or something with the
hardrive reading a writing continuously) like crazy... it doesn't stop, I
let it go all night to no avail, yet no appreciable memory loss.

  Q: is there a simple way to increase the size of the swap file? I have a
feeling that it I can bump the size up it will get me through whatever
decompression is needed.
