we just built a 16-node alpha cluster. we planned on using linux on machines 
from dcg. the machines came with nt however, so we started the process of 
loading linux. Not long into the process, we noticed the blood on the 
wall and on the tops of our heads and decided to try netbsd. Wow, what a 
nice piece of work. Uses SRM, soft reboots, has a serial console, wow wow 
wow. Anyway, it's up and we love it. Nice job folks. We expect to be 
doing some good computing once I get back from vacation in september ...
