I have had this in mind, even before I found vserver. My first thought was to use
User Mode Linux for this. I have not had much time to work on this. The big problem
is that I have not been able to get openmosix working. The main reason for that
is the lack of boxes to test on. That is fixed now though.

I will continue to work on this and see what I can find out. I heard in some other
thread that it compiles so I'll try to get there first. Later on I'll see how to
patch things so it works well.

I know that mosix is not well suited for IO bound applications. On the other
hand, that is a problem with mosix and not vservers. Vservers should be perfectly
suitable in a cluster environment for computational purposes.
