Sorry, I should have been more specific.  The link you gave was for  
setting up High Availability Cluster to maintain a database of  
patients at a hospital.

What I want to do is set up a High Performance Cluster for math and  
science related number crunching and some graphics (fractals, ray  
tracings, animation, etc).

Please don't send me links, I can search the web myself.  I am  
wondering if anyone on this mailing list has had experience setting up  
such a cluster using Ubuntu.
