"ParallelKnoppix is a remaster of the Knoppix live CD distibution of GNU Linux that allows setting up a cluster of machines for parallel processing using the LAM-MPI and/or MPICH implementations of MPI, as well as PVM. You can convert a room full of machines running Windows into a Linux cluster, and when you shut down, your Windows machines are in their original state. The computers in the cluster can be homogeneous or heterogeneous. Getting the cluster up and running takes about 5 minutes, if the machines have PXE network cards. Clusters from 2 to 200 machines are supported.
# New version
* NTFS curse cured! You can now use a USB key drive for the working space if your entire HD is occupied by NTFS partitions
* MPI and PVM both working
* removed pgapack, too many compile problems
* added links to MPI tutorials. One requires registration, but I highly recommend it
* DMA on by default
* other minor bugs fixed, and general beautification"
