sure. You can build virtual bproc clusters. bproc is a much lighter
weight system than opemmosix or openssi. We run 12,000 CPUs of cluster
here at LANL with bproc. It's very nice.

If you are interested I can get you a writeup on how we did this. The
work was done about 18 months ago.

for more info on bproc, see clustermatic.org. The next-gen bproc we are
doing, called xcpu, is even lighter weight than bproc, and runs on any
kernel, though for full capability it is good to have kernels >=2.6.14
