Hi Hubert, 
I've just looled at your webstite. It's great to know that someone could use 
NetBSD for such a big event. However, I didn't find any information about how 
cluster is installed. Could you please tell me more details about your cluster. 
What software did you use and how to make 45 machines work as a cluster. I'm a 
new kid in cluster field so kindly explain everything in details. 
Thank you very much,
